MAYOR CALLS FOR SPECIAL 
MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL 
IN EFFORT TO MAKE EF = 
FECTIVE REOROANIZATION 
PLANS. 

The following communication has gone 
forward from the office of the Mayor: 
To the Members of the CHij Coundl. 
Gentlemen: 

You arc hereby requested to assemble 
in the City Council Chamber on Thursday, 
December 31, 1953, at 11 o'clock a.m., 
for the purpose of taking action in whole 
or in part on the ordinance now pending 
before your Honorable Bodj' for "Re- 
organizing Certain Boards and Depart- 
ments of the City. " 

If your Bodj' is not prepared to give 
approval to the entire ordinance as sub- 
mitted on November 30, 1953, I suggest 
and recommend that at least that part 
of the ordinance establishing an ' Ad- 
ministrative Services Dcipartment be 
adopted. The adoption of this part of 
the ordinance will enable one of the 
important features of. this plan to go 
into effect, and will provide this dejjart- 
ment with the necessary authority to 
begin its work at the start of the municipal 
year. 

Respectfull}', 
John B. Hvnes, Mayor. 



CHANGES IN ZONING AND 
LAND USE PROPOSED BY 
CITY PLANNING BOARD. 

(Continued from page 1.) 

dollars of new building construction or 
alterations within the city may be at 
stake. This billion-dollar sum is the 
rough total of a series of estimates for 
four kinds of potential construction dur- 
ing the twenty years ahead: construc- 
tion on vacant land, $270,000,000; con- 
struction in redevelopment area.s, $120,- 
000,000; replacement in other areas, 
§440,000,000; alterations and conversions, 
$200,000,000. 

Revised Zoning Among Vital Needs. 

The report points out that a revised 
zoning code alone will not attract in- 
\estment capital, but that other im- 
provements are also vital, such as im- 
provements in public service facilities, 
traffic improvements, and neighborhood 
conservation. The zoning code is, how- 
ever, expected to influence the volume 
of this construction. If the code is 
modernized, it might be credited with 
an increase in \-aIuation averaging a 
quarter of a million dollars each year. 
But even if. there were to be no increase 
directly attributable to zoning, the 



Board considers that the guidance of 
planned zoning to about a billion dollars' 
worth of new buildings is itself of in- 
estimable value to the community. 

The Planning Board stresses in the 
report that the present zoning code, 
adopted in 1924, is outmoded in both 
its regulations and map. Although the 
original zoning has been amended from 
time to time, each change has been 
piecemeal, leaving the code as a whole 
overwhelmingly out of date. During 
its thirty-year life, changes of all sorts 
have occurred. 

Many parts of the city have com- 
pletely altered in their character. New 
methods of building design and con- 
.struction, and new practices in building 
economics have made obsolete the 1924 
standards of height, density, spacing, and 
other features. Changes in the average 
size of family and other social changes 
have outdated large residential areas. 

The auto and the truck have wrought 
their revolutions in the way people live 
and do business, and in the face of the 
city, as a result. The Board believes 
that the city is confronted with a need 
for even more sweeping changes in the 
future, to fit Boston for living and doing 
bu.siness in the second half of the twen- 
tieth century. 

The report describes a number of basic 
studies completed during the past year, 
or still in process. The 1935 city-wide 
sui'\'ey of land use needed to be brought 
up to date, and this work is well ad- 
vanced. New land-use maps, showing 
1953 conditions, have been completed 
for Charlestown, South Boston, Brighton, 
Embankment Road-Park Drive area, 
Dorchester, and the Central Area. 
Taken together with the 1935 set, these 
maps enable direct comparisons to be 
made of the changes that have taken 
place during the intervening era. Over- 
lays show specifically the growth or de- 
cline of industrial and commercial es- 
tablishments as well as changes in auto- 
motive and transportation facilities, 
filled land, and other alterations of a 
significant nature. They also indicate 
areas where the present zoning districts 
are inconsistent with existing uses. 

Major Objectives. 

The report sets forth four major ob- 
.iectives of rezoning: 1. The new code 
should promote investment in desirable 
types of buildings and land use by re- 
moving any inhibitions to such devel- 
opment in the present law. 

2. It should give protection (o good 
development by including requirements 
which will insure adequate standards of 
light, air, building spacing, and density, 
by carefully locating the districts and 
their boundaries on the map. 

3. It should bring about correction.s 
of past low-standard buildings over a 
period of time, by reducing nuisances, 
by the gradual elimination of noncon- 
forming uses and, perhaps, by requiring 
the provision of new facilities such as 
off-street truck-loading docks for down- 
town buildings that lack them. 

4. The new code should be so drawn 
that it can be adapted from time to time 
to fit changed conditions, but including 
flexible provisions for appeals, for vari- 
ances, for special exceptions, and for 
amendments. 

The report makes a number of .specific 
recommendations for modernizing the 
present code in line with the stated ob- 
jectives. Of major importance is the 
proposal that building bulk be expressed

in terms of "floor area ratio" (the ratio 
of the total gross floor area of a build- 
ing to the net area of its lot), and that 
maximum floor-area ratios be set for the 
various zones and uses. Included in the 
report is a table giving the ratios ten- 
tatively proposed. The report points 
out that such a control over bulk should 
be supplemented by other regulations 
dealing with the setback of a building 
from the street and from side and rear 
lot lines. 

The report also recommends that the 
new zoning code require off-street load- 
ing facilities for all new business and 
industrial buildings and off-street park- 
ing facilities for all new apartments and, 
except for offices and stores in the down- 
town area, for all new nonresidential 
buildings. Parking requirements would 
vary depending on proximity to the 
Central Area and public transportation. 

In regard to zoning administration, 
the report urges closer liaison between 
all the agencies and officials involved 
in the zoning process: the Planning 
Board, the Building Commissioner and 
Zoning Administrator, the Board of 
Appeal, and the Board of Zoning Ad- 
justment. It points out that a great 
gain in efficiency would result if appli- 
cations for permits were handled by a 
central agency that would clear the ap- 
plication with appropriate departments 
of both city and state. 

It suggests that, in line with the best 
modem practice, the Board of Appeal 
be given the authority to grant special 
exceptions, now in the hands of various 
municipal departments. At present map 
changes are made by a local body 
(Board of Zoning Adjustment) but text 
changes require an act of the State 
Legislature. The report proposes that 
to extend local autonomy perhaps the 
text also could be changed by the Board 
of Zoning Adjustment with confirmation 
by the City Council. 

Recommendations made in the report 
for floor-area ratios and parking and 
loading requirements were based on the 
findings of several studies described in 
detail in the Technical Supplement. In 
one of those studies, an inventory was 
made of nonresidential floor space in the 
core of the Central Area. There was 
overwhelming evidence that past build- 
ing here, as in the balance of the city, 
has been at markedly lower floor-area 
ratios than the zoning permits, and that 
the most recent construction is even 
lower than that of the past. 

The new zoning code and map are 
scheduled for completion by the end of 
1954.

RETIRES.

period when Mr. Fox was Budget Com- 
missioner. I know him intimately, and 
realize the great value he was to the 
cit\' government perhaps more than 
anybody else. On several occasions he 
has declined offers which would have 
compensated him far Ijetter than the 
compen.sation he received from the city 
government. 

Even though Mr. Fox is retiring as 
City Auditor, I am heartened by the 
fact that he is willing to return to the 
city government for a period in order to 
get into operation the proposed reorgani- 
zation of city departments. It is my 
intention, when positive action is taken 
by the City Council, to appoint Mr. Fox 
as the director of the new department of 
.-Vdmini-strative Services of the city. I 
know of no better qualified person to 
take over this position.

way to approximately 1,450 feet east

in the highway named Waldemar avenue, 
consisting of the reduction in sidewalk 
widths from 8 to 7 feet, from William 
F. McClellan Highway to 1,440 feet

The grade of Waldemar avenue, from 
Crestway road for a distance of 1,440

BOSTON HEALTH UNITS. 

Boston's tenth health unit located in 
the Mattapan section of the city was 
dedicated in September, 1950. 

The health unit is the neighborhood 
center through which the services of the 
Health Department are brought to the 
people of Boston on a district basis. 
Each unit is .supervised by a medical 
inspector of the Health Department. 
Nurses, sanitary and food inspectors, 
health educators, and other personnel of 
the Health Department work out into 
the district from their headquarters at 
the health \mit. Dental clinics, tuber- 
culosis clinics, X-ray facilities and well- 
child conferonees are among the services 
offered at all the health units. In addi- 
tion to the Health Department person- 
nel, offices of other health and welfare 
agencies are also located in the building.

] WITHOUT ADVERTISING. 

Upon varying dates as indicated the 
Mayor approved contracts with commer- 
cial houses, firms, and contractors for 
furnishing labor, .supplies, etc. Com- 
munications from heads of the depart- 
ments interested were as follows: 

In.stitutions Depart.ment. 
BcsTCV, December 24, 1953. 
I Hox. JoH.v B. IIynes, 
i Mayor of Boston. 
De.\r Mr. M.wor: 

On or about October 20, 1953, Mr. 
Ralph Plunkett, plant superintendent, 
I noticed several cracks in the top section 
i of the power house chimney and called 
the Daniel Marr Company to make an 
inspection of the chimney. They reported 
j that there were five cracks about 5 feet 
long and opened about 1 inch at the top. 
This constitutes a veiy dangerous con- 
dition due to the buildings and persons 
in that area. 
At that time, an emergenc}' service 
; order was made out to the Daniel Marr 
Company in the sum of 8890, to point 
and bind the upper part of the chimney. 
After the storm of November 6 and 7, 
j 1953, Mr. Plunkett noticed that some of 
I these cracks had opened to about 3 
inches in width. This condition w'as 
extremely dangerous, so I had the Marr 
I Company erect a stage approximately 
I 100 feet high, remove the damaged section 
I of the chimney, and put on a temporary 
j cap to carry us through the winter, as it 
I would be expensive and hazardous to 
I attempt to rebuild the chimney at this 
time of the year. 

I respectfully request that a contract 
be awarded to Daniel Marr Company in 
the amount of 82,693, without advertising, 
as the work was of an emergency nature. 
It would have been dangerous to the 
lives of patients and employees of Long 
Island Hospital to have waited to ad- 
vertise this work. It also was impossible 
to pre-estimate the amount of work to 
be done. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John R. McGillivr.\y,

M.vyor's Office. 
BosTO.v, November 13, 1953. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

M ayor of Boston. 
Dear .Mr. ^Iayor: 

I res[)ectfully request your author- 
ization to dispense with a public invitation 
for proposals in the Cily Record and to 
enter into a contract, in the sum of 
82,918.40, with George A. Tirone, doing 
ljusiness as George A. Tirone Studio, 
creators and designers of art displays, 
located at 850 Washington street, Boston, 
Mass., providitig for («) the repairing and 
refurbishing of numerous festive and reli- 
gious figures to bo included in the 1953 
Christmas Festival display by the City of 
Boston Festival Committee and (6) the 
transportation of the figures from the 
warehouse to the contractor's Ceftablish- 
ment for these reconditioning processes 
and their delivery to and installation in 
the Boston Common and the Boston 
Public Garden. 

The customary public advertising pro- 
cedure would not, in my ojjinion, be of 
advantage to the city in the present 
instance. This firm has had considerable 
experience in this kind of work and is a 
speciali.st in its chosen field. Further- 
more, its price for the proposed work is 
fair and rea.sonable and, in addition, this 
contractor performed work of this nature 



for the city last year and did so in a highly 
satisfactory manner. 

Respectfully yours, 

Paul TI. IIines, Festival Director. 



Bo.sro.\, November 13, 19-53. 
llo.v. John B. Hy.nes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Mr. AIayor: 

I respectfully rerjuest your authoriza- 
tion to dispense with advertising in the 
City Record and to award a 86,950 contract 
to C. llassler Capron, doing business as 
Capron Lighting Companj', 177 Austin 
street, Xewtonville, Mass., to provide the 
extensive lighting of the 1953 Christmas 
Festival display to be established on Bos- 
ton Common and the Boston Public 
Garden. 

The proposed contract will include the 
furnishing of all the necessary skilled labor, 
apparatus, and materials to completely 
and artistically illuminate the Christmas 
display. The lighting system to be set up 
will literally embrace thousands of lights, 
electric outlets, and fixtures; hundreds of 
yards of green laurel; extensive wiring; and 
numerous floodlights. 

This firm has been engaged in service 
of this nature for a quarter of a century 
and has a wide reputation for skill in the 
field of creative lighting display work. 
This contractor annually installs the 
Christmas lighting for the Chestnut Hill 
Shopping Center. Also, the Christmas 
lighting effects set up in Lexington and 
Wellesley this season were installed by the 
Capron Lighting Company. In addition, 
the contractor carries public liability and 
property damage insurances. 

In view of the foregoing and because of 
the veiy special nature of the work in- 
volved, it is not considered that public 
advertising would be of advantage to the 
city. 

Respectfully j'ours, 
Paul H. Hinbs, Festival Director. 

Park Department. 
Boston, December 7, 1953. 
Hon. John B. IIynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Sir: 

The Board of Park Commissioners re- 
spectfully requests your permission to 
renew the agreement with the American 
Coin Lock Companj', of Pawtucket, 
Rhode Island, for the operation of con- 
venience stations on Boston Common for 
another one-year period, begiiming No- 
vember 1, 1953, and ending October 31, 
1954, at the sjimc rate of payment and 
under the ssime conditions as in the previ- 
ous agreement which ended October 31. 

The city has been paying to the Ameri- 
can Coin Lock Companv for this service 
the sum of 82,500 a j'ear, and in addition 
to this .<um the company retains the pro- 
ceeds of the coin locks. 

The companj' furnishes and pays four 
attendants to maintain the four con- 
venience stations on the Common, two 
at Park street, one at West street, and 
one at FlagstalT Hill, and furnishes all 
supplies and cquii)ment for cleaning and 
servicing the stations. The companj- has 
furnished these services for j'cars in a 
most satisfactorj' manner. 

If the P.ii k Department were to oi)erate 
these stations, the salaries alone of four 
attendants would be in excess of 811,000 
annually, and the department would have 
the additional expen.se of furnishing all 
supplies and cleaning materials. 

The Board of Park Commissioners i)e- 
licves that nothing woulil be gained by

publicly advertising for bids and that the 
best interests of the city will be served by 
renewing the agreement for one year, be- 
ginning November 1, 19.53, at the rate of 
$2,500 for the yeai-, to be charged to Park 
Department Budget Item 299. Your 
approval is requested to enter into an 
agreement as described herein, without 
publicly advertising for bids. 

Respectfully yours, 

Fr.\nk R. Kelley, Chairman. 

Boston, December 7, 1953. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
De.\r Sir: 

This department has an agreement 
with the Albany Equipment Company, 
70 Bristol street, Boston, for the furnish- 
ing of steam for the heating and operation 
of the laundry and bathhouse at Dover 
street, Boston, which expires on December 
15, 1953. This agreement was for a 
one-year period, starting December 15, 
1952, charged to the 1953 budget. 

For a number of years the Fire Depart- 
ment furnished the steam required for 
the operation of the Dover Street Laundry 
and Bathhouse. The Fire Department 
property was purchased by the Albany 
Equipment Company, and since that 
time they have been furnishing the 
personnel, the fuel, and necessary supplies 
for the furnishing of the above-mentioned 
service to our laundry and bathhouse. 

The Albany Equipment Company is 
arranging to transfer the power plant, 
which furnished the steam for our Dover 
Street propert}^ to the Bay Realty 
Company, Inc., of 70 Bristol street, 
Boston. Robert G. Mearn, who is 
owner of the Albany Equipment Company 
is also the president and treasurer of the 
Bay Realty Company, Inc. 

Under our present agreement, which 
will expire on December 15, we have 
been paying $2,800 monthly for the 
furnishing of steam 24 hours a day, 
seven days a week, with all personnel 
and supplies that are required. 

A letter has been sent to me by Robert 
G. Mearn in which he lists his entire 
costs for furnishing of steam during the 
year 1953. He has listed a breakdown 
of the salaries paid to the various em- 
ployees on a weekly basis, plus the cost 
of oil used for furnishing the steam on 
a month-to-month basis, workmen's com- 
pensation, public liability, repairs and 
maintenance of boilers, reserve for de- 
preciation, and an overhead cost of 10 
per cent covering supervision and main- 
tenance of the power building, taxes, 
light, etc. These come to a total expense 
of $42,661.42. 

There is no question that the expense 
involved in furnishing the steam is a 
just one because our experience has been 
that it has cost the city at least this 
amount of money to operate the facilities 
at Dover street. 

This department is now in the process 
of drawing plans and having a survey 
made towards the constru(^tion, in the 
very near future, of our own bath, 
laundry, and steam plant on property 
adjacent to the Dover Street Ivauiidry 
and liathhousc. 

It i.s po.s.sible that we may construct 
and complete this building in 1954, and, 
if we do so, then we will be able to ter- 
minate the contract for which we are now 
asking your permission before the ter- 
mination date of the contract. In the 
meantime, we require that this .service 
be furnished u.s, or otherwise wo would 
be required to clo.se down the laundry 
and bathhouse.

Pen.^^l Institutions Depart.\ient. 
Bo.STON, December 23, 1953. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Sir: 

Chapter 69, Acts of 1941, provides 
"that all persons committed for any 
crime, unless the Court otherwise orders, 
have or cause to be taken his name, age, 
height, weight, photograph and general 
description and copies of his fingei-prints 
in accordance with the fingerprint system 
of identification of criminals. All such 
photographs and identifying matter shall 
be committed forthwith to the Com- 
missioner of Public Safety." The above 
law took effect on June 8, 1941, and, 
since that date, it is compulsory that all 
inmates be photographed upon com- 
mitment. 

In accordance with the above law, I 
therefore respectfully request permis- 
sion to award a contract, without public 
advertising, to pay Fay Foto Service, 
Inc., for the performance of taking 
photographs of all persons committed 
to the House of Correction, Deer Island, 
in the sum of $1.75 for each set of the 
pictures of each person photographed. 
The contract shall be for a period beginning 
with the first daj^ of Januaiy, 1954, and 
ending on the thirty-first day of Decem- 
ber, 1954. Estimated cost will exceed 
$1,000. 

This type of work is necessarily of a 
very confidential nature. The Fay 
Foto Service, Inc., has done this work 
for a number of years in a highly satis- 
factory manner. Because this company 
has guarded carefully these confidences 
and because the confidential matter is 
best intrasted to one company, I feel 
that the city's interests will be best 
served by engaging their sei-vices. 

Yours very truly, 

Edward L. Friel, 
Penal Inslilnlions Commissioner. 

Printing Department. 
Boston, December 18, l!)53. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Your Honor's permission is respectfully 
reciuested to permit the Printing Depart- 
ment to award a contract without ad- 
vertising to Mooie Business Forms, Inc., 
285 Columbus avenue, Boston, Mass., 
for furnishing 611,500 continuous carbon 
interleaved tax bills and 44,500 con- 
tinuous carbon interleaved tax lists for 
the 1954 tax requirements for the Collect- 
ing and Assessing Departments. Total 
cost of these forms will be aiiproximately 
$18,080.96. 

Those forms are to be lithographed and 
arc designed for use with automatic 



pinfeed devices and form-detaching and 
decollating machinery now in use at the 
Assessing Department. This equipment 
was purchased from Moore Business 
Forms, Inc. 

The above-named company has fur- 
nished the city with tax bill forms and 
tax bill lists since the tabulating machines 
were installed at the Assessing Depart- 
ment, and its products have alwaj's been 
highly satisfactory. 

In view of the satisfactory performance 
continually rendered on the part of this 
contractor during so many years and 
because of the special type of device 
purchased by the Assessing Department 
applicable for use on these forms, in my 
opinion nothing is to be gained by 
publicly advertising, and therefore I 
respectfully request your permission for 
the awarding of a contract, without 
advertising, to Moore Business Forms, 
Inc., for furnishing these tax bills and 
tax lists to the city at an estimated 
cost of $18,080.96. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John J. Twomey, 
Siiperintendent. 

Supply Department. 
Boston, December 11, 1953. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On December 2, 1953, your Honor ap- 
proved an award on medical and surgical 
supplies, with permission to reject the 
bids received on two microscopes, inas- 
much as those received were not accept- 
able, and to purchase them at a later date. 

Inasmuch as there is insufficient time 
remaining to publicly advertise for bids, 
make awards, and issue orders so that the 
microscopes will be delivered in 1953, in- 
formal quotations were solicited from the 
manufacturer and several other com- 
panies on the exact type of microscope re- 
quired. All bids received were identical, 
namely, $577 each, net, or a total of 
$1,154, net. 

In view of the above-mentioned facts 
and the immediate need for this equip- 
ment at the Boston City Hospital, it is 
requested that permission be granted me 
to dispense with public advertisement 
and award a contract, without i;ublic ad- 
vertisement, to T. J. .\()onai> ('ompany, 
one of four tie bidders. 

Total amount of contract will be $1,154, 
not. 

Kespectfully yours, 

John V. Moran, 
Superintendent of Supplies.

Boston City Ho.spital. Included in said

trade-in of $l.')0 allowance on Item 32." 

Your permission is requesteil to amend 
said letter by tleleting "S. M. Levin Com- 
pany, Inc.," in the above-mentioned 
statement and substituting " E. F. Mahady 
Company" in its place. 

It is requested that all other provisions 
of the .-iforesaid letter not inconsistent 
herewith shall remain in full force and 
effect. 

Respectfully yours, 

John V. Moran,

Dear Mr. M.wor: 

On January 7, 1953, you approved a 
request that I made to you that I be 
allowed to award a contract, without 
publicly advertising for bids, to Patrick F. 
Fitzgerald of Boston, providing for the 
transportation of prisoners from this 
court to various institutions during the 
calendar year 1953. This contract was 
later entered into and in the contract it 
was stated that the .sum payable during 
1953 could not exceed $4,800. 

Due to an unexpected increase in the 
numi)er of ])risoners to be transported, 
it seems now that the total cost during 
1953 will come clo.se to $G,600. I there- 
fore re(iuest your Honor's permission to 
allow me to amend the contract, so that 
the sum not to be exceeded during 1953 
will be $6,600, instead of the previous 
figure of $4,800. 

Very truly yours,

drapes, curtains and other fabrics, and 
repairs to operating mechanisms in various 
schools from December 31, 1953, to March 
31, 1954. Contract approved December 1,

contract with Massachusetts Heating 
Corporation for furnishing and installing 
new oil-burning equipment at the South 
Boston High School, from October 31, 
1953, to January 31, 1954. Contract ap- 
proved June 23, 1953. This extension 
was requested because, although burners 
are in operation and supplying heat, 
there is some material which suppliers 
have not as yet been able to deliver, 
thus the delay in completion of contract. 

Public Works Department. 
Approval has been given for the ex- 
tension of the time of completion of the 
contract with Charles Callahan Company, 
69 Zeigler street, Roxbury, Mass., ap- 
proved by the Mayor March 24, 1953, for 
rebuilding the upstream sidewalk of the 
Milton Bridge, over the Neponset River, 
to December 14, 1953. This extension 
was requested because the contractor was 
delayed by the New England Telephone 
& Telegraph Company, whose conduits 
had to be relocated and supported. 



ADDITION TO CONTRACT. 

Fire Department. 
Approval has been given of the following 
addition to the contract of John J. Botti, 
dated November 4, 1953, for the con- 
struction of manholes and installation of 
conduit underground in Ashmont and 
Newhall streets, Dorchester: 

Addition No. 1. 

Furnish labor and material to excavate 
and install 150 feet of 3-inch wrought iron 
conduit beyond the termination of the 
present installed conduit toward Neponset 
avenue, to replace defective conduit. 
Also, backfill and replace permanent pave- 
ment, $1,125; original contract, $6,550; 
addition No. 1, $1,125; total contract with 
addition, $7,675. 

As part of the contract, the contractor 
is required to pick up the existing conduit, 
which is now installed from a manhole, in 
Neponset avenue to a pole opposite 
No. 586 Ashmont street, and connect this 
existing conduit into manhole "A" as 
shown on plans which are part of the 
contract. 

The Fire Alarm Division of this depart- 
ment attempted to remove the cables from 
this duct in order that the work of ex- 
tending the conduit could be performed. 

It was found, however, that the cables 
could not be removed. Upon excavation, 
it was found that approximately 150 feet 
of this duct, which was installed many 
years ago, had deteriorated and rotted 
away. In order to complete the work 
necessary to connect the underground con- 
duit with the duct feeding in from Nepon- 
set avenue, it will be necessary to install 
150 feet of new duct. 

The additional work was not contem- 
plated in the original contract inasmuch as 
the condition of the duct could not be 
determined until excavation had been 
made for the purpo.se of connecting the 
old installation with the underground in- 
stallation performed under the contract. 



CONSTRUCTION WORK. 

The Mayor has approved the reciuest

Reynolds road (formerly Nelson street),

CITY RECORD 



Francis J. Hurley, and Hoscmaii William 
H. Hurley of Engine Company 2 received 
information that members of the crew of 
the "Leyte" were trapped below. They 
donned all-service masks and descended 
to the deck below the hangar deck for 
the purjjose of rescuing members of the 
crew. They passed through a door in a 
bulkhead but found the heat unbearable 
and had to leturn to the hangar deck 
where they procured a 1 j-inch line and 
stretched it down a gangway in order to 
extinguish the fire or dissipate the extreme 
heat. About this time, Hoseman Francis 
J. Hurley had difficulty in breathing and 
went toward the gangway where he 
collapsed and was carried up to the hangar 
deck from whence he was removed to the 
hospital. Meanwhile, the all-service 
mask worn by Capt. Willett apparently 
became fouled or clogged, and he lo.st 
consciousness. Hoseman William H. 
Hurley of Engine Comj^any 2, who had 
gone to the hangar deck to procure 
Chemox masks, again descended to the 
deck below accompanied by Lieut. 
Robert J. Crawford of Engine Company 
39. They found the unconscious form 
of Capt. Willett and carried him up to 
the hangar deck, whence he was removed 
to the hospital. 

Later, at another incident at the fire, 
Hoseman Lawrence T. White of Engine 
Company 26, wearing a Chemox mask, 
descended with other members of the 
department to the second deck below the 
hangar deck for the purpose of recovering 
the bodies of victims of the fire. They 
came across the body of a crew member 
in a small room off a passageway, and 
Hoseman White entered the room to 
assist placing the body in a stretcher. 
Because of the confined area in which he 
had to work and the exertion required, 
he became exhausted and was assisted 
up the gangway by other members of the 
department and was removed to the 
hospital. 

The Fire Commissioner is plea.sed to 
highly commend Capt. Fred T. Willetl, 
Lieut. Robert J. Crawford, Hoseman 
Francis J. Hurley, Hoseman William 11. 
Hurley, and Hoseman Lawrence T. 
White for their devotion to duty and the 
extreme risk to which they exposed 
themselves, without thought of their 
own safety, in attempting to save lives 
and recover the bodies of victims of the 
explosion and fire. 

The cases of the foregoing-named are 
referred to the Board of Merit foi' further 
consideration. 

By order of Fire Commissioner Joh.v F. 
Cotter. 

John V. Stapleton, 
Chief of De-partment .

RECENT FEDERAL ACTIONS AFFECTING 
CITIES. 

The Housing Act of 1949, approved 
on July 15, authorized a uniform 10 per 
cent payment to cities in lieu of taxes 
on housing projects, but the independent 
offices appropriation bill passed on Au-

the fiscal year ending June 30, 1950, 
only payments provided for in the 
original contract between the housing 
authority and the city are authorized 
for federal reimbursement.

HOUSING FOR AGING PERSONS. 

The following was received: 

City of Boston, 
Office of the Mayor, Deceml^er 17, 19.j3. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I transmit herewitli communication from the 
Housing Authority relative to an order of Novem- 
ber 23 concerning housing for aging couples. You 
will note that provision has already been made for 
such housing and that consideration is being given 
to the possibility of giving separate housing for 
sueli persons. 

Respectfully 

.1. B. IIynes, Mayor. 

Boston Housing .\uthority, 

December 8, 19.53. 

Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
My dear Mr. Mayor: 

In reply to your communication of November 
2,), 1953, the following information is submitted to 
you on the subject matter. 

Tlie problem of housing for the aging has been 
a consideration of this Authority for many years 
prior to the enactment of specific state legislation 
on this subject this year. 

When the present building and planned pro- 
gram of the Authority is completed, it will have 
distributed througli its various developments 
approximately 3,200 one-bedroom apartments 
which can be made available to aging couples. 

In the federally aided developments the -Au- 
thority lias always welcomed such families and 
|)resently has 455 of them as tenants who are 
recipients of public assistance. In the two federally 
aided developments now building at Columbia 
Point and Bromley park this Authority is building 
318 one-bedroom apartments. 

In the development at Bromley park special 
features have been incorporated in the design for 
uging persons. Such design includes special bath- 
ing facilites equipped with protective liandrails, 
and some electric cooking ranges are to be installed, 
as they are considered better a<laptcd to this type 
occupancy. 

Nonveteran aging persons cannot now be ac- 
cepted in the state-aided developments under 
i hapter 200, inasmuch as this is an exclusively 
veterans' program. This Authority has been in 
conference with the Stat<! Housing Board on this 
matter, and legislation will be introiluced to make 
such housing available both to aging couples and 
individuals if veterans are not applicants for the 
small apartments. Since most young veterans 
are now in the growing family class, it is felt that 
there will be opiiortunity to serve the aging in this 
prograiri. 



The Authority is in receipt of the questionnaire 
from the State Housing Board mentioned in the 
order. 

The information needed is now being assembled 
from various sources, and the results of that col- 
lection of material will be sent to the State Housing 
Board. 

This Authority has already conferred with the 
Department of Public Welfare to receive its 
viewpoint on this problem. Further meetings will 
be held with other interested agencies. 

Be assured that this Authority will keep abreast 
of this situation. 

Very truly yours, 
Owen A. Gallaoher, Chairman. 
Placed on file. 



PAYMENT OF SALARIES OF HOSPITAL 
EMPLOYEES. 
The following was received: 

City of Boston, 
Office of the Mayor, December IG, 19.53. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I transmit herewith communication from the 
City Treasurer relative to your order of December 
7, 1953, requesting that the City Treasurer be 
directed to arrange with the paymaster to have 
the salaries of hospital employees ready for them 
at the end of their shift, particularly those em- 
ployees who are assigned to the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. 
shift and who, under present arrangements, are 
forced to wait many hours for the paymaster. 
Respectfully, 

J. B. HvNE.s, Mayor. 

City of Boston. 
Treasury Department, December 15, 1953. 
Harold B. Flemming, 

Chief Clerk, Mayor's Office. 
Dear Sir: 

I acknowledge receipt of your memorandum of 
December 9, 1953, in reference to an order of the 
City Council of December 7, 1953, requesting 
that the City Treasurer be directed to have the 
salaries of hospital employees ready for them at 
the end of their shift, particularly those employees 
who are assigned to the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift and 
who, under present arrangements, are forced to 
wait many hours for the paymaster. 

On December 4, 19.53, payroll No. 1802 was 
not available to our paymaster when he left this 
office at 7 a.m. 

I have checked with the City Auditor's office 
and have found that the delay in processing this 
payroll was unavoidable due to the large number 
of personnel changes on the roll. 

"This office is making every effort to have our 
paymasters at the hospital at 7.30 a.m. to pay 
the.se night workers, and I have been assured by 
the Auditor's office that the rolls will be available 
in proper time in the future. 

Very truly yours, 

Daniel M. Dbiscoll, 

City Treasurer. 

Placed on file. 



BANNING OF SALE OF CERTAIN CHRI.ST- 
MAS TREE DECORATION. 

The following was received: 

City of Boston, 
Office of the Mayor, December 18, 19.53. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I transmit herewith communication from the 
1 ire Commissioner relative to your order of 
December 14, 1953. requesting that the Fire 
Commissioner be authorized, for the safety of the 
people of Boston, to prohibit the sale of a Christmas 
tree decoration containing a chemical which"is 
a potential death dealing weapon" as described 
by the State Fire Marshal. This ornament is 
filled with a tetrachloride which, when it comes 
in contact with open flame, produces a deadly gas. 
Respectfully, 

J. B. Hynes, Mayor. 

City of Boston, 
Fire Department, December 17, 1953. 
Mr. Harold B. Flemming, 

Chief Clerk, Mayor's Office. 

Replying to your memorandum of December 10, 
the article referred to by Councillor Hurley in 
City Council order dated December 14 was with- 
drawn from sale in this city as a result of a con- 
ference with the manuf.acturer (from Philadelphia), 
the distributors, and the deputy chief in charge of 
lire prevention. A.ssurances were given that none 
would be shipped into this city. The Greater 
Boston Retail Trade Board, the Better Bu.siness 
Bureau, and the National Fire Protection A.ssocia- 
tion gave us excellent cooperation in this matter. 

The purpose of Councillor Hurley's order is 
highly commendable. The subject rai.ses a question 
that has long vexed fire prevention authorities in 
the city. Under our present law, no officer of 
this department has the authority to prohibit the 
sale of any article that is dangerous to the public. 
There are many products on the market, particu- 
larly toys and kindred articles, which should not 
be sold; however, if they bear the proper label, 
no authority can order the vendor to cease selling 
them. 



If an order similar to that of Councillor Hurley's 
could be made more general in its scope, the Fire 
Department, the city, and the public safety will 
be benefited, and the Council will have rendered 
a great public service to the people of Boston. 
Very truly yours, 

John A. Cotter, 
Fire Commis.sioner. 

Placed on file. 



GAMMA GLOBULIN POLIO VACCINE 
TEST. 

The following was received: 

City of Boston, 
Office of the Mayor, December 21, 19,53. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I transmit herewith communication from the 
Health Commissioner relative to your order of 
November 23, 1953, requesting the Health Com- 
missioner of the City of Boston to report to the 
City Council whether Boston will be included in 
the nationwide gamma globulin polio vaccine test; 
where inclusion is desirable at this time as a matter 
of public health policy, and that this report be 
filed before .lanuary 1, 19.54. 

Respectfully, 

J. B. Hynes, Mayor. 



City of Boston, 
Health Department, December 15, 19.53. 
Hon. .lohn B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
My dear Mayor: 

Your communication of November 25, together 
with an order passed by the City Council on 
November 23, 1952, that the Health Commissioner 
of the City of Boston report to the City Council 
whether Boston will be included in a nationwide 
gamma globulin polio vaccine test, where the 
inclusion is desirable at this time as a matter of 
public health policy, and that this report be filed 
before January 1, 1954, has been received. 

During the many years that infantile paralysis 
has been a disease of major importance in the 
nation, as well as in the City of Boston, the matter 
has received serious study hy the Health Depart- 
ment and many highly specialized workers in the 
field of virus diseases. Recently, the Health De- 
partment discussed this with the State Agency and 
the Suffolk County Chapter of the National 
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, and has made 
a study of tlie various materials which have been 
advocated for the protection against anterior polio- 
myelitis, (infantile paralysis). There are certain 
facts relative to the proposed program of the Na- 
tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis for the 
protection of children against infantile paralysis 
which are herewith set forth: 

Fact Sheet on Vaccine Validity Study. 
Purpose of the Study. 

To determine the effectiveness of a trial polio 
vaccine in protecting children against paralytic 
polio. 

Vaccine to be used. 

The vaccine to be studied is the one recently 
developed by a research grantee of the National 
Foundation — Dr. Jonas E. Salk, Research Pro- 
fessor of Bacteriology at the University of 
Pittsburgh. 
Nature of the Study. 

The vaccine will be given to second grade school 
children during the non-epidemic period before 
June 1, 1954. Thereafter its protective effects 
will be evaluated by comparing the incidence of 
subsequent paralytic disease in that group with 
such incidence in the first and third grade school 
children. 
When. 

The vaccinations will start during the week of 
February 8, 1954. 
Duration. 

The vaccinations must be completed by June 1 , 
1954, to precede the .season of high incidence. 
Where. 

The study will get undenvay in one or more 
counties in the South. In a gradually expanding 
program, more than 200 counties throughout the 
United States will be involved. It is expected that 
as many as 25 counties may be under test 
simultaneously. 
Selection of Counties. 

To insure a valid basis for a significant study, 
counties are being selected whose previous records 
indicate: 

1. High polio incidence for past five pears. 

2. High epidemic rate in past five years during 
June through September. 

3. High attack rate in specific age group. 

4. Adequate health and education facilities. 

5. Socio-economic factors, geographic location, 
etc., to provide a significant cross-section study. 
Number of Cliildren. 

It is expected that from .500,000 to 1,000,000 
children will receive the vaccine. A minimum of 
500,000 is required to provide a statistically valid 
answer. Up to a million may be involved, de- 
pending on amount of vaccine available. 
Who will be vaccinated. 

Children in the second gr.ade of school will bo 
vaccinated. The age of the child will not be the

deciding factor. Children of this school grade are 
usually between six and one-half to eight years of 
age. 

Dose of Vaccine. 

Three injections of vaccine will be Riven. Each 
dose is 1 c.c. The first two doses will be given at 
one-week intervals, the third dose four weeks later. 
The third do."* is the "booster." .\11 injections 
will be given in the arm. 
Type of Control. 

The basic controls will be the children in the 
first and third school grades. These will not be 
injected. The incidence of sub-sequent paralytic 
polio in those grades will be compared with such 
incidence in the vaccinated grades. Other controls 
will be the siblings of the vaccinated children, and 
children in second grades who do not receive the 
vaccine. 

Results of Study. 

The results will not be known until sometime in 
1955. 

Preparation of Vaccine. 

The vaccine is composed of killed virus of all 
three types which have been grown in test-tube 
cultures of monkey kidney tissues. The virus has 
been killed by exposure to formalin and is prepared 
in a watery solution (aqueous type). 
Vaccine Production. 

The vaccine used in the study will come from 
several pources, with the bulk of it to be produced 
by a pharmaceutical manufacturer. Dr. Salk is 
also growing the virus and producing the vaccine. 
As the study progresses, the vaccine may be pro- 
duced by a number of pharmaceutical houses. 
.\11 vaccine, however, will be produced according 
to Dr. Salk's formula. 
Safety Tests. 

Before being administered to children, tlie vac- 
cine will have to pa.ss three independent series of 
safety tests. The tests will be performed by the 
commercial manufacturer, by Dr. Salk, and by the 
Biological Standards Division of the National 
Institutes of Health, the branch of the United 
.States Pubhc Health Service which licenses and 
controls the manufacture of all biological prepara- 
tions. 

Who Will Conduct the Trials. 

The vaccine validity study will be a project of 
the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. 
In each county the local health oHicer will be in 
charge. Ix>cal physiciaas will administer the 
injections. 

Cooperating Agencies. 

Tlie study is being conducted with the close 
looperation of state and county public health 
officers, various medical societies, and school au- 
thorities. The As-sociation of State and Territorial 
Health Officers ha.s appointed a committee con- 
sisting of Dr. II. H. Hutcheson (Tennc.s.see), 
Dr. .lohn D. Porterficld (Ohio), and Dr. Herman K. 
lliUeboc (New York), to advise with the National 
I'oundation in planning the vaccine study. 
\'olunteers. 

Volunteers from the National Foundation's 3,100 
chapters, covering ever>' county in the United 
States, will help in organizing and manning the 
study in local areas; civic and community groups 
will also participate in the project. 
Cost of Study. 

The cost of the project is estimated to \:c 
$7,.'-)00.000. 

The procedure summarizes the program as 
advocated by the National Foundation for In- 
fantile Paraly.sis and additional data pertaining 
to the protective treatment against infantile pa- 
ralysis. The principles of immunization as applied 
to poliomyelitis have been set forth in an article 
bv .Jonas K. Salk, .M.D., in the American Journal 
of Public Health, Vol.43, No. XI. of November, 
I'J.IS. 

A killed virus vaccine poses no |)roblem of safety, 
with respect to the virus com))oncnt, if treatment 
Ls carried out in a way which will destroy com- 
pletely the capacity to multiply without imparing 
antigenic effect ivencss. 

The information is that the vaccine to bo used 
in the program is composed of a killed virus of 
all three types of the known viruses for anterior 
poliomyelitis. In reference to the locations in 
the United Statiwi where inoculations were to 
lake place as of December 2, l'.K>.i, a final selection 
of the counties for the vaccine field trials has not 
been di-termined, but they shall be on a nationwide 
basis on a highly selective procedure worked out 
ill coo|MTation with state health officers in dcter- 
iiiining those counties where the vaccines will be 
administered. The counties selected will have to 
be on a wide geographic distribution throughout 
the IJiiilid Stales, including rural, small urban, 
and large urban communities. They will also 
have to rmbrare various race and economic grou|>s. 
Many factors will have to l>c considered in the 
wli ction of the counties for study. For example, 
the records of poliomyelitis occurring in a com- 
munity, the adequacy of its health organization, 
and its desire to take an active part in the field 
trial, and the desire of the me<liral society to cii- 
i.|H'rale and the iisHurame of local doctors that 
they will be al le to carry out the administration 
of the vaccine in line with carefully planned 
proce<lur*'s. 

A careful study han been made relative to the 
propiwd program for the protection of children in 
the second grade of schools at selected locations 
throughout the Unittwl Slates with controlle<l 
groups of children in the first and third grades 



against infantile paralysis. From present indica 
tions the vaccine to be inoculated is harmless. 
In accordance with the information, however, the 
incidence of infantile paralysis in Boston during 
the last five years is not of sufficient magnitude to 
justify selection by the National Foundation for 
inoculation in this area, and the medical societies 
and physicians have not demonstrated an enthu- 
siasm to actively participate in an inoculation 
program to commence in February, 1954. To 
effectively carry out a program and to set up and 
register controlled groups would entail a longer 
period of time than exists between now and the 
date which the Foundation has set up for the 
commencement of the program. 

An immense amount of experience would have 
been gained by other sections of the county where 
the vaccine would have been used, and this ex- 
perience would be of inestimable value in guiding 
Boston in determining whether an anti-pofio- 
myelitis inoculation program should be established 
at some future date. 

Very respectfully yours, 
John- 11. C.kuley, M.D., M.P.H., 

Health Commissioner.

Boston made outstanding progress in

Commissioner. According to a report 
from Dr. Cauley the birth rate remained 
high, the death rate declined a little, 
and the preventable causes of death 
saw substantial declines. 

Infant mortality showed an especially 
fine record. In 1953 the estimated birth

Chairman Owen A. Gallagher of the 
Boston Housing Authority today an- 
nounced that the main application ofiBce 
of the Authority had moved from the 10 
Post Office Square Building to the tenth 
floor of the Oliver Building at 141 Milk 
street, Boston. 

Chairman Gallagher gave as the rea- 
sons for the removal the fact that the 
lease of the Authority at 10 Post Office 
square was expiring on December 31, 
(Continued on page St.) 



At the inaugural ceremonies for the new City Council on Mon- 
day, Mayor John B. Hynes deUvered the following address: 

Today marks the beginning of a new municipal year. I pray it will be 
a year of progress for our city government and one of peace and prosperity 
for our citizens. 

It is no exaggeration to report that Boston, like many other large cities, 
is now going through a most challenging period. Neither is it exaggeration 
to state that Boston, because of its comparatively small area, and because 
of its narrow income base, has less weapons with which to meet that chal- 
lenge than any of the larger cities of our country. 

The job ahead is made more difficult by the fact that there is no im- 
mediate prospect of better implements to work with, and for the reason, 
too, that Boston is an old city, with many of the ills which come with age. 
We must, therefore, tackle the job with the tools at hand. We must strive 
not merely to do our best, but better than our best. In no other way can 
we meet the challenge and the responsibihty which rests upon us. 

Huge Tax Exemption Problem. 

The business and industrial activities of a city are its lifelines. Ours 
are being cut almost daily. Over 30 per cent of the properties in our city 
are tax exempt. This percentage is growing, and public improvements 
such as the Central Artery will further increase this percentage. Applica- 
tions for building permits for the year 1953 indicate clearly what is 
happening. For the 12-month period just passed these applications 
represented approximately $15,000,000 of new construction. Of this 
amount, $9,000,000, or 60 per cent, was for tax-exempt structures. It is 
hardly necessary to emphasize the truism that the less property there is to 
tax, the higher must go the tax rate, or the less service we can provide. 
The higher the tax rate, the more difficult it is to attract new business; 
indeed, the harder it becomes to hold our present business. 

A situation such as this calls for forthright, even extraordinary, 
remedies. 

Restore Business Confidence. 

In the absence of substantial income, other than that from real estate, 
we must arrange, plan, and direct our municipal functions in such manner 
as to perform every essential activity of municipal government at the 
lowest possible expense consistent with good service and efficiency. By 
following such a course we give encouragement to business within our city 
and assurance to other business interests that our city government is 
attempting to discharge its responsibilities with more than passing regard 
for those who pay the lion's share of municipal costs. It would be a great 
tragedy, with depressing consequences to our city and our people, if 
business were to lose confidence in the municipal government. We must 
not let that happen. 

It is unfortunate that reference to Boston's high tax rate carries with 
it an implication that our city is the most wasteful and extravagant of all 
the large cities in our country. This is an unjustified and unfair 
assumption.

{Continued from page ^9.) 

1953, aud some additional space was 
necessary because of the volume of work 
expected in connection with the opening 
of three developments in the spring and 
summer of 1954. 

Chairman Gallagher pointed out that 
tenants would be accepted in the devel- 
opment at Columbia Point in the spring, 
with initial occupancy to follow soon 
after in the state-aided development for 
veterans at Franklin Field sometime 
during the summer. It is expected that 
initial occupancy will take place also in 
the development at Bromlej' park in the 
summer of 1954. 

The chairman stated that it would be 
advisable for all families interested in 
housing to file applications as promptly 
as possible. For those who have applica- 
tions on file and where there have been 
changes in income or family size it would 
be advisable for them to have these 
corrections made. 

The chairman went on to state that 
because of the economic changes in the 
value of the dollar the Authority was 
requesting increased income limits for 
the federally-aided developments. In 
view of this, Mr. Gallagher requested all 
pei-sons having incomes within S500 in 
cxce.ss of those presently established for 
admission in the federal developments 
to file applications, as it was entirely 
possible that the Authority would be 
able to house such families. The present 
income limits for admission to the 
federal developments are: $2,300 for a 
two-person family with SlOO for each 
minor additional ; $2,500 for a three- and 
four-person familj^ with $100 additional 
for each minor; and $2,800 for a five- or 
more-person family with SlOO additional 
for each minor.

ANNUAL ADDRESS OF MAYOR JOHN B. HYNES AT 
THE INAUGURATION OF NEW CITY COUNCIL. 

{Continued from page 29.) ■ 

As far as comparative tax rates are concerned, our position would be 
vastly improved if our city had available to it the sources of income now 
available to cities which have a more attractive tax rate than Boston's. 

\ higher or a lower tax rate is not necessarily a true reflection of 
efficient or inefficient management of a city, nor is it necessarily true that 
a business enterprise, or individual taxpayer, located in a lower tax rate 
community has a distinct advantage over those whose businesses or homes 
are in a high tax rate communit}^ On the surface it might appear so, but 
upon close analysis it can be shown that the over-all cost of doing business, 
or living, in a so-called high tax rate community is actually no greater than 
in a so-called lower tax rate community. 

Outmoded Tax Base. 

As true as this may be, it is equally true that it is common practice 
to classify a city according to its tax rate, and, as long as this is so, and as 
long as Boston must perform its municipal duties from an outmoded and 
insufficient tax base, it is imperative that we be ever-watchful of any 
expense which will further inflate the tax rate. 

Fortunately, in Boston there are many individuals and groups who 
clearly understand the numerous impediments which make impossible an 
immediate change in our tax rate picture. Fortunately, too, the state 
government has come to the realization that Boston is the key to the 
prosperity of the commonwealth as a whole. On many sides, I am glad to 
say, there is a newer and a fairer understanding of Boston's problems and 
a genuine desire to help in the solution of those problems. Marshaling all 
our forces in a common endeavor to improve Boston's position will result 
in a better city, a better community, a better state. 

There is nothing so wrong with Boston that the right kind of medica- 
tion will not help. Oiu" city has no malady for which the combined, 
concerted efforts of those who love it cannot provide a cure. It is true that 
the city officials have a grave and primary responsibility. We acknowledge 
it and we accept it. But there is also a responsibility on the part of all 
good citizens, secondary though it may be, to help the city oflScials ac- 
complish those objectives which must be reached if our city is to retain its 
place among the leading and progressive cities of our land. 

I am most happy to state that abroad in our city today is a spirit of 
willingness to help. A city with spirit is a city which cannot be counted out. 

Notable Economies Effected. 

In recent years the city administration has effected notable economies 
which, unfortunately, have been swallowed up by charges, such as the 
AITA deficit over which the city administration has no control. 

This administration will make further economies wherever and when- 
ever possible. It will continue to strengthen the basic structure of the 
city government, for, unless that is done, we are subject to the vagaries 
of every economic wind that blows. 

In this year of 1 9.54 it is my intention to begin a complete revaluation 
of the assessable properties in our city. Until that is accomplished there 
will be inequities in profusion; there will be pulling and hauling and in- 
e\'itable charges of favoritism; there will be an almost uncontrollable 
traffic in abatements; there can be dissatisfaction, disquiet, and even 
suspicion. 

The common rule of fairness, in addition to other compelling reasons, 
dictates the necessity for a city-wide revaluation. 

Rehabilitation Important. 

The rehabilitation of our city, insofar as it can be done, is of prime 
importance to every individual in oiu' city. Boston is old, but not so old 
that it pathetically awaits the call of the grim reaper. Many of the areas 
within our city need rejuvenation, rehabilitation. The large-scale urban 
redevelopment plans, once legally approved; the new redevelopment plans 
of the federal government liberalizing construction and repair financing, 
once approved hy the Congress; and the rehabilitation plans of the citj'^ 
itself, with its 15 committees of district leaders, once put into full opera- 
tion, will revive our city, stop decay and blight, and give Boston a new. 
attractive face and a better outlook for the future.

CITY RECORD 



Jan. 9 



The reorganization of the stnacture of our city government is both 
necessary and sensible. 

The purpose of reorganization is to streamline an archaic and costh' 
administrative pattern of departments and boards. It will improve depart- 
mental efficiency; it will make possible the merging of closely related 
functions; it will result, in due time, in marked savings in municipal 
operating costs. 

On the last day of the old year your Honorable Bod}^ gave appro\ al 
to the establishment of an Administrative Services Department. This 
new department will begin its work immediately. It is my opinion that 
this department will prove to be of great \ alue to our city in the same 
way and to the same extent that similar departments have proved of great 
value to other large American cities. 

Reorganization Plan. 

The remainder of the reorganization plan, not yet enacted, is being 
submitted to your Honorable Body today. 
I recommend its passage. 

The quicker all of the reorganization plan is enacted into ordinance, 
the quicker we may go forward in the complicated task of putting the 
complete plan of reorganization into motion. I trust that this most im- 
portant matter will be promptly acted upon. 

In closing, may I suggest to the City Council that its collective and 
individual support of petitions filed by the city with the 1954 Legislature 
will be most welcome and helpful. 

The passage of many of these bills will be extremely beneficial to our 
city, and especially is this true of matters pertaining to the strengthening 
of our financial position; the elimination of inequities in JMTA deficit 
assessments; the better regulation of traffic and parking; the construction 
of a municipal auditorium within the area of the new Back Bay Center, 
w'hich, incidentally, I am reasonably confident will come to pass as the 
outstanding improvement in our city for many long years. Your interest 
and help in the passage of city-sponsored bills before the Legislature can 
be invaluable. 

Interest and Help Asked. 

Your interest and help in many other directions can also be of invalu- 
able aid. Despite the need for careful scrutiny of all expenditures, there is 
the necessity of keeping the plant of the city in good running order. It is 
just as short-sighted to ignore the pressing demands calling for major or 
capital outlays as it is to spend the city's money in a reckless or frivolous 
fashion. To postpone major improvements that can no longer be deferred 
is to prepare a sorry mixture of bitter broth for the future. 

No city stands still. It goes backward or forward. Even though our 
forward progress be painfully slow, we must keep going ahead, for as long 
as our motion is in that direction we serve our city well. I shall, therefore, 
from time to time during this year, submit for your consideration and your 
approval matters which will have as their objective the preservation or 
improvement of our physical plant, in addition to matters which will have 
for their purpose the strengthening of our financial position. 

In your consideration of these matters, I most respectfully suggest 
that reasonalily prompt action on the part of your body will give assurance 
that the elected officials of our city government are worldng in concert for 
the good of our people and for the l)ettermcnt of our city. 

Finally, let me, for the historic record, mention the annual Art Festival 
held early in June, and the Christmas Festiwil held during the Christmas 
season, both of which attract thousands of suests to our city, and both of 
which enhance Boston's world-wide reputation as a center of cultural and 
spiritual pursuits. Let me also express my deep appreciation to the volun- 
teer unpaid committee which made a study and excellent recommendations 
relative to our traffic problems; to the committee still engaged in an inde- 
pendent survey of our municipal finances: and to ttie 15 committees wnich 
are the foundations of our hopes to stop the growtii of blight and decay 
which can, unless retarded, affect our whole city. 

Racial Tensions and Delinquency. 

These committees and the committees and individuals who work 
with us in our efforts to eradicate the causes of racial tensions and juvenile 
tlelinfjuency, and who work with us in our annual Field Day and Christmas 
Fund Campaigns for the poor and unfortunate in our city, are all deserving

of public acclaim. It is the voluntary, whole-hearted, and generous spirit 
of these committees and individuals which give us the right to be proud 
of the innate good qualities of our citizens. 

To each of the members of the 1954-1955 City Council I extend my 
personal well wishes and my hope that our relationships will be productive 
of an improved municipality. It is not an empty phrase to state that the 
cooperative action of the City Council and the Chief Executive will bring 
dividends in the way of better city government and better municipal 
service. Let our aim be in that direction. Together, and in an atmosphere 
of understanding, mutual trust, and cooperation, we can accomplish much 
for our fellow citizens who delegated to us the responsibilities which are 
ours. 

May we always remember, both you and I, that all power comes 
from God, and let us implore Him to guide us in all our deliberations so 
that the power which is temporarily in our hands may be utiHzed for the 
things which, in His sight, are good things. 



REPORT ON BOSTON'S 
HEALTH IN 1953. 

(Continued from page 39.) 

births, is essentially the same as in 1952, 
when 15,255 babies were born. In 1952, 
however, 428 children died in the first 
year of life, while in 1953 only 345 lives 
were lost. The resulting infant mortal- 
ity rate for 1953 of 22.9 is the lowest 
ever achieved in Boston. 

Record Unequaled. 

In 1951 and 1952 the maternal mor- 
tality rate reached almost an irreducible 
minimum, with only seven deaths re- 
corded each year. In 1953, however, 
only five deaths occurred from child- 
birth. This phenomenal record reflects 
the excellence of care obtainable in the 
city. No city anywhere in the world of 
a size comparable to Boston has as yet 
been able to equal this record in ma- 
ternal mortality. 

The rate for the United States is 0.6 
per 1,000 live births. The Boston rate 
is 0.3 per 1,000 live births. The maternal 
death rate for the past five years has 
averaged only 0.5 — an achievement 
unique for any city, regardless of size. 

The tuberculosis death rate reached a 
new low of 210 for the year, with the 
corresponding rate per 100,000 popula- 
tion of 25.9. This information signifies 
a victory of major proportions over one 
of the most dreaded and deadly of all 
diseases. 

Just ten years ago, in 1943, the death 
rate was 64.9 per 100,000, which repre- 
sented 506 deaths of Boston citizens. 
In these ten years the rate has been 
more than cut in half, and work will 
continue until tuberculosis drops into 
insignificance. Credit for these tremen- 
dous strides must be given to a team 
composed of private physicians, hospi- 
tals, sanatoria, research workers, nurses, 
and public health workers. Together, 
applying new drugs, new techniques, 
early diagnosis and treatment, they have 
given tuberculosis patients the chance 
for recovery and normal lives. 

Public health work in Boston was not 
limited only to child hygiene and tuber- 
culosis in 1953. Many other significant 
accomplishments were achieved and 
plans set up for the conquest of still 
new areas where problems exist. Heart 
disease, cancer, and diseases of the cen- 
tral nervous system hold the three top 
places as leading causes of death and 
together accounted for half of the total 
deaths for the year. 

Infectious Diseases Cause Less 
Deaths. 

Infectious disca.ses have not been a 
major problem for many years, but each 
succeeding year sees a further shrinking 
of mortality from these causes. No 
deaths occurred from .scarlet fever, 
measles, mumps, typhoid fever, or 
whooping cough. Meningitis, diphtheria 
pohomyelitis, infectious encephalitis, 
and infectious hepatitis together caused 
only eight deaths. 

For several years, and again in 1953, 
accidents hold the fourth place, with 
451 deaths caused by various types of 
accidents. Accidental falls accounted for 
193 deaths, and motor vehicle accidents 
for 80. Since accidental deaths and ac- 
cidents are preventable, the large loss 
of life and the even larger factor of 
crippling, suffering, and economic loss 



associated with nonfatal accidents make 
it imperative that immediate attention 
be given to every possible method for 
reducing accidents. Boston has joined 
with 23 other cities and towns in the 
metropolitan area in an educational pro- 
gram which hopes to reduce the acci- 
dent toll. Home accidents, contrary to 
popular belief, cause the largest number 
of accidents, especially to the preschool 
and older-age groups. The metropolitan 
accident prevention program has already 
been started, and the cooperation of the 
public is being sought to help eliminate 
accidents from the list of leading causes 
of death. 

The Health Department continued 
its many other activities in 1953 accord- 
ing to Dr. Cauley. The control, inspec- 
tion, and supervision of food from the 
time it arrives in the city until it is sold, 
processed, or prepared in a restaurant 
was again a major endeavor. Control 
of the quality of milk was maintained 
at its usual high level, once more assur- 
ing Bostonians one of the purest and 
highest quality milk supplies to be found 
anywhere. 

Sanitation and housing also received 
increased emphasis as a result of other 



progressive moves being made in Boston. 
In addition to routine procedures, special 
surveys and inspections were made in 
cooperation with reclamation programs 
initiated in various sections of the city. 
In 1953 it was a good year for public 
health. 



VEHICULAR TRAFFIC THROUGH 
SUMNER TUNNEL IN 1953 
BREAKS ALL RECORDS- 
TOTAL OF 10,835,670 VEHICLES 
USED TUBES— 1,251,698 MORE 
THAN PREVIOUSLY, 

Vehicular trafiic through the Sumner 
Tunnel for the year 1953 was 13 per cent 
higher than in the year 1952. This was 
revealed in figures made public from the 
office of Public Works Commissioner 
George G. Hyland this week. 

.\ccordiug to the Commissioner a total 
of 10,835,670 vehicles used the tunnel in 
1953, to break the previous record of 
9,583,972 vehicles established in 1952. 
The increase in 1953 over 1952 totals 
1,251,698 vehicles.

reference Ls made to General Laws (Ter. Ed.) 
chapter 8.'>, section 1 which was accepted by the 
Boston City Council in 1941 and has been con- 
tinuously in effect since that time. 

Attention is also directed to Rule 78 of the Rulc-«

INFORMATION RE PROPOSED 
REORGANIZATION PL.AN. 
The following was received: 

City of Boston, 
Office of the Mayor, December 28, 1953. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I transmit herewith information in answer to the 
order adopted by your Honorable Body under date 
of December 21, 1953, in which specific questions 
were forwarded to me relative to the reorganization 
plan. 

I trust this information will be useful in the 
dehberations of the City Council. 

Respectfully, 

J. B. HyxES, JIayor. 

1. Tlie plan of organization provided in the 
proposed ordinance will be put into operation 
immediately following adoption of said ordinance. 

2. Tentative plans for the consolidation and 
changes proposed in the ordinance now before the 
Council have been considered. The actual working 
out of said plans will go forward following the 
selection of the officers and boards set forth in 
the ordinance 

3. The information requested may be obtained 
from the accompanying exhibit. 

4. See answer to No. 3. 

5. The information requested will be provided 
in the 1954 budget, which is now under preparation 
for submission to the Council on February 1, 1954. 

6. The status under the proposed reorganization 
plan of positions created by statute may be sum- 
marized as follows: 

No curtailment of authority, tenure or compensa- 
tion. 
Appeal, Board of 
Art Commission. 
Civil Defense Director. 
Election Commissioners. 
Examiners, Board of. 
Hospital Trustees. 
Library Trustees. 

Park Commissioners (number increased from 

three to five). 
Public Welfare Trustees (number decreased 

from twelve to five). 
Retirement Board. 
Sinking Funds Commissioners. 
Traffic Commission. 
Treasurer. 

Zoning Adjustment, Board of. 

No curtailment of tenure or compensation. Au- 
thority with respect to acquisition and dis- 
posal of property, the making of contracts, 
and the appointment, compensation, and 
control of personnel curtailed. Technical and 
professional responsibilities remain unchanged. 

Building Commissioner. 

Registrar, City. 

Weights and Aleasures, Sealer of. 

Position aboUshed. 
Assessors. 
Collector. 

Fire Commissioner. 
Real Estate Commission. 
Street Commissioners. 

In the opinion of competent legal authority, 
the provisions of section 5 of the City Charter, 
as most recently amended b\' chapter 473 of the 
Acts of 19.')3, authorize the City Council with the 
approval of the Mayor to reorganize and abolish 
positions created by statute, with the exception of 
those in departments specifically exempted under 
chapter 473. 

7. No immediate savings are claimed for the 
l)ropo.sed reorganization plan except those whicli 
may result from the elimination of administrative 
positions. 

8. In a recent bulletin, the Massachusetts 
Federation of Taxpayers .\ssociation, in comment- 
ing on the high cost of local government in Massa- 
chusetts, stated: "Less streamlining of administra- 
tive organizations in our cities and towns, as 
compared with many states, has aluo kept our 
costs high. ' Boston today is o|>erating under a 
plan of dcjiartmcntal organization which was 
establishcil when its tax rate was SIC. ,50 and its 
tux levy $22,750,000. The present inadequacy of 
this i)lan is apparent in our current $70.70 tax 
rate and $110,000,000 levy. It is believed that 
the proposed plan of reorganization will provide 
better departmental coordination, thus improving 
the quality of the services of our city government 
Had reducting its costs. These accomplishments 
will mean a lesseoing of the tax burden on the 
taxpayers, provide a higher level of service to the 
public, and assure the employees of greater security 
of compensation and employment. 



Jan. 9 



CITY RECORD 



9. The provision that "not exceeding thirty 
building inspectors" may be employed in the 
Building Department is to be found in section 1 
of chapter 9 of the existing City Ordinances. This 
language has been interpreted consistently to mean 
that class of inspectors in the Building Department 
concerned with the structural problems involved 
in the Construction of Buildings. Under this 
interpretation inspectors concerned with special 
features, such as egress, sprinklers, elevators, 
plumbing, and gasfitting have not been included 
in tlie limitation. This interpretation will be 
maintained under the proposed reorganization. 

A specific reply to the tenth and last matter 
mentioned in you request for information would 
appear unnecessary; for the Corporation Counsel, 
I am informed, has adequately dealt with that 
matter in a letter to the Executive Committee of 
your Honorable Body. Suffice it, therefore, to 
repeat that I said in my message of November 30, 
1953, submitting to you the pending reorganization 
ordinance, that a reorganization of the structure of 
government such as is entailed in that ordinance 
can best be put into operation at the commence- 
ment of a fiscal year. Accordingly, I earnestly 
recommend that you act upon the proposed ordi- 
nance before January 1, 1954. Should you fail to 
do so, the proposed ordinance must be withdrawn 
in the interest of the orderly conduct of municipal 
business and resubmitted with another adminis- 
tratively feasible effective date. 

(Annexed hereto is the accompanying exhibit 
referred to in the foregoing answer No. 3, listing 
personnel schedules.) 

Referred to Committee on Ordinances.

FRITZ B. BURNS TO AD= 
DRESS COMMITTEES ON 
NEIGHBORHOOD REHA= 
BILITATION PROGRAM. 

{Continued from page 67.) 

of the committees have carefully organ- 
ized their local programs, notably in 
South Boston, Charlestown, and the 
South End. It is the hope of the Mayor 
that all of the groups will be in action 
by spring when a city-wide "Clean-up, 
Paint-up, Fix-up, and Plant-up Cam- 
paign" will be launched to give further 
impetus to the program. 

Serving on the Mayor's Advisory Com- 
mittee are: George G. Hyland, Public 
Works Commissioner; Dr. John H. Cau- 
ley. Health Commissioner; Harry J. 
Keefe, Building Commissioner; Frank 
R. Kelley, Chairman of the Park De- 
partment; and Thomas F. Sullivan, Po- 
lice Commissioner. Col. Paul H. Hines 
is program co-ordinator. 

The neighborhood rehabilitation and 
conservation activity is a long-range 
program. Its sole and only purpose is 
to check the severe blight that has set in 
in many of the older residential sections 
of the city and thereby not only protect 
the city's tax values, but make Boston 
a better place in which to live and work. 
It is the Mayor's belief that it will take 
five years before substantial results will 
be obtained. 

Mr. Burns, who will address the first 
joint meeting of the 15 district commit- 
tees, is a noted authority on city re- 
habilitation and conservation programs. 
While serving as president of the Na- 
tional Association of Home Builders he 
traveled more than 100,000 miles in pur- 
suit of information concerning the 
problem and has played an important 
role in stimulating city rehabilitation 
throughout the nation.

* Contract awarded. 

WITHOUT ADVERTISING. 

Upon varying dates as indicated, the 
Mayor approved contracts with com- 
mercial houses, contractors, etc., for fur- 
nishing labor and supplies. Communica- 
tions from heads of the departments 
interested were as follows: 

HospiT.'\L Dep.\rtment. 
Boston, December 18, 1953. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 
Mayor oj Boston. 
Dear Sir: 

We are now renting rooms for three 
female doctors, members of the Boston 
City Hospital staff, because of a shortage 
of proper quartere. The unit cost of 
these rooms at present rates is $9 a week. 

The number may be increased as fe- 
male doctors are added to the staff dur- 
ing 1954. I respectfully request your 
approval of this continued policy of the 
rental of rooms at the Franklin Square 
House for that period between January 
1 and December 31, 1954, at a total cost 
of approximately $2,000. 

Very truly yours, 

J.\MES W. Manary, M.D., 
Superintendent . 

Institutions Dep.artment. 

Boston, January 5, 1954. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 
Mayor oj Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your authoriza- 
tion to dispense with a public solicitation 
of proposals in the City Record and to 
award a contract to the Eastern Massa- 
chusetts Street Railway Company, a 
Massachusetts corporation with offices at 
165 Devonshire street, Boston, Mass., 
providing for the furnishing of daily bus 
service from the rapid transit station at 
Fields Corner to Long Island Hospital, 
Boston Harbor, Mass., commencing with 
Januai-y 1, 1954, and ending with the last 
day of the month in which the annual 
municipal budget of the City of Boston 
for 1954 becomes effective but in no 
event later than March 31, 1954, at a 
cost not in excess of $12,000. The pro- 
posed contract will contain a provi.sion 
extending to the city an option to renew 
the contract upon the same terms and 
conditions and at the same rates to cover 
the remainder of 1954, terminating on 
December 31, 1954, if funds are available 
therefor. 

The aforenamed firm has carried on 
this bus service since its inauguration in 
the summer of 1951, and has conducted 
its operations in nn efficient and satis- 
factory manner. 

On all the facts, and as this company 
has the franchise over the route and since 
it is willing to continue the service imder 
the existing terms and conditions, in- 
cluding the present rates, it is my opinion I 



that nothing would be gained by public- 
ly advertising for bids for performance 
of the subject bus service. 

Respectfully yours, 

John R. McGillivray, 

Commissioner. 

Boston, January 8, 1954. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 
Mayor of Boston. 
De.ar Mr. Mayor: 

In order to provide for the proper 
treatment and care of the chronically 
sick patients of Boston under ideal sur- 
roundings it has been decided, after long 
and careful study, advantageous to erect 
a 500-bed hospital at Long Island. The 
addition of these beds to the hospital 
facilities of Boston will release beds at 
the Boston City Hospital which arc 
needed for the care of those who arc 
acutely ill. 

The plan.s for the new building should 
be drawn by an architect who is not 
only outstanding in his profes.sion but 
who has also had broad experience in 
hospital construction. I have selected, 
subject to your approval, an architect 
who meets both of these requirements, 
John M. Gray, 175 High street, Boston. 

Mr. Gray has rendered outstanding 
architectural services for the Trustees of 
the Boston City Hospital and also for 
the Institutions Department at Long 
Island Hospital. He was the architect 
of the Massachusetts Cancer Hospital at 
Westfield. He also sensed as a member 
of the commission on a planning survey 
made for the Massachusetts Department 
of Mental Healtli. He was the architect 
for additions to the Peabody Ho.spital 
and for the Salem Hospital. 

In view of the professional nature of 
the work and of Mr. Gray's outstanding 
ability in this particular field, I feel that 
no public purpose would be sei-ved in 
publicly advertising for bids for the 
architectural services involved. 

I respectfully request your approval 
for the awarding of a contract to John 
M. Gray for his services in drafting the 
jjlans for and overseeing the construction 
of the building of a 500-bed hospital at 
Long Island without publicly advertising 
for bids. 

The cost of the new building will not 
exceed $5,000,000, and Mr. Gray will be 
paid a fee at the rate of 6.5 per cent of 
I ho total cost. 

Respectfully yours, 

John R. McGillivray, 

Commissioner. 

Law Department. 

Boston, December 31, 1953. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 
Mayor of Boston. 
De>r Mr. Mayor: 

There are presently pending before 
the Appellate Tax Board appeals by the 
John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance 
Company from the refusal of the As- 
ses.sors of Boston to grant abntomcnt.s 
on account of the 1950, 1951, 1952, and 
1953 real estate taxes assessed to that 
company upon the land and buildings 
at 197 Clarendon street, Boston. If the 
assessors' case is to be adequnlely pre- 
.sentcd to the Appellate Tax Board at 
the trial of those appeals, expert advice 
as to the reproduction cost new less de- 
preciation of the buildings in question 
must bo obtained. Because of the high- 
]y professional nature of such advice. 



inviting bids therefor by advertisement 
in the City Record would be wholly im- 
practicable. Diligent search for a suit- 
able expert has disclosed Hayden, Hard- 
ing & Buchanan to be an engineering 
firm eminently qualified and available 
to give such advice. Accordingly, au- 
thority is hereby respectfully requested 
to dispense with advertising in awarding 
a contract to Hayden, Harding & Bu- 
chanan, a partnership with offices at 810 
Park Square Building, Boston, for mak- 
ing, at a cost to the city of $42,000, a 
study and report as to such reproduc- 
tion cost new less depreciation, and for 
pro\iding, if so requested by the city, 
expert witnesses to testify as to such 
reproduction cost new less depreciation 
at the trial of such appeals at a cost to 
the city of $3,000. 

Respectfully, 

William L. Baxter, 
Corporation Counsel.

estate tax. It is further agreed that un- 
til such time as the real estate tax rate 
for the year 1954 is finally determined, 
the sum of $278 shall represent the "ad- 
ditional rent." Further, if the 1954 I'oal 
estate tax as finally determined should 
be less than the 1949 real estate tax, no 
"additional rent" shall be payable, and 
the lessor co\'cnanls and agrees to jiay 
the lessee the difference. 

Inasmuch as the total rental will ex- 
ceed $1,000, your permission to enter

Purchasing Division. 

Boston, January 11, 1954. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor oj Boston. 
Dear Mr. M.\yor: 

On December 31, 1953, your Honor 
authorized the awarding of a contract 
to Commonwealth Chevrolet Company 
for furnishing two automotive vehicles, 
namely, a 1953-54 station wagon. Ford 
Country Model, for Long Island Hospi- 
tal, Institutions Department, at a cost 
of 81,600, and a 1953-54 i-ton pickup 
truck for the Park Department, at a 
cost of 81,010, making a total amount of 
82,610, less 2 per cent discount, time of 
payment. 

Subsequent to this date the Purchasing 
Division was informed that no funds 
were available for the 1953-54 station 
wagon, Ford Countiy Model, for the 
Institutions Department. 

Your permission is therefore requested 
to amend my original letter dated De- 
cember 29, 1953, by canceling Item 4 and 
awarding Item 5 only to Commonwealth 
Chevrolet Company in the total amount 
of 81,010, less 2 per cent discount, time 
of payment, after deducting 8350, trade- 
in allowance on a used vehicle. 

Respectfully j^ours, 

John V. Moran, 
Purchasing Agent. 

Supply Department. 
Boston, December 29, 1953. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor oj Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On October 9, 1953, your Honor granted 
me permission to reduce the amounts of 
the awards on bulk rock salt due to the 
fact that there were not sufficient funds 
in the budget of the Public Works De- 
partment to cover payment of the orig- 
inal quantities. 

Sufficient money has now been made 
available to procure additional quanti- 
ties of rock salt. Authority is therefore 
requested to award a contract to Eastern 
Salt Company and a contract to the 
Chemical Corporation for 1,500 tons of 
rock salt at 813.80 a ton, the original 
price submitted by both companies at 
the time of the publicly opened bid of 
August 26, 1953. It is my opinion that, 
in this way, the best interests of the city 
will be served. 

Approximate total amounts of con- 
tracts will be as follows: 

Eastern Salt Company, $20,700, net; 
Chemical Corporation, 820,700, net. 

Respectfully youi-s, 

John V. Moran, 
Superintendent oj Supplies.

Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor oj Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

In providing for the feeding of in- 
mates of this institution, it is our prac- 
tice to i)urcha.se all staple foods through 
the Supi)ly Department. In the case of 
perishable foods like meal, fish, fresh 
vegetables, and potatoes, we have found 
it advantageous, due to constant daily 
changes in population, to order these 
l)erishable food supplies direct by tele- 
phone from wholesale concerns three or 
four times weekly.

CitV RECORD

From checks we have made with the 
Supply Department from time to time, 
we are certain that the prices for grade 
"A" meats and vegetables charged by 
these firms are comparable to prices 
secm-ed by the Supply Department. I 
believe our procedure with regard to 
perishable foodstuffs saves money for the 
county, since the daily count of the jail 
determines the amount of food ordered, 
and we have direct control with the con- 
cerns relative to quality and quantity 
and quick delivery. 

The wholesale firms we buy from are 
Charles Govoni & Son, Inc., 10 Faneuil 
Hall Market, Boston; D. J. Halloran & 
Sons, Inc., 28 B & M Produce Market, 
Boston. 

As our purchases during the course of 
the year will exceed $1,000, I respectfully 
request that authority be granted to me 
to dispense with public advertising inso- 
far as the particular commodities are 
concerned, and that I be authorized to 
approve whatever contracts or agree- 
ments may be required under existing 
statutes with the two firms named above. 

Respectfully yours, 

Frederick R. Sullivan, 
Sheriff. 

Municipal Court, Roxbury District. 

BOSTON; January 2, 1954. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

We respectfully request your authoriza- 
tion to enter into a written contract with 
Patrick Fitzgerald, doing business as 
Fitz Taxi, at 554 Talbot avenue, Dor- 
chester, without public advertising, pro- 
viding for the transportation of prisoners 
to certain designated institutions, as may 
be requested by and in accordance with 
the instruction of the court, during the 
calendar year 1954. 

The contractor will be paid for such 
services as may be ordered and rendered 
in accordance with a set schedule of 
rates and as provided in the proposed 
contract. Tlie total amount of contin- 
gent expenditures during 1954 is not to 
exceed $6,500, with the amount of same 
in the first three months being limited 
by applicable statute. 

The above-named individual, whose 
rates are both fair and reasonable, has 
been engaged in the business of trans- 
portation for a considerable number of 
years and has an established reputation 
for dependability, efficiency, and for the 
rendering of satisfactoiy service. In con- 
sideration of the foregoing, we are of the 
opinion that nothing would be gained 
by public advertising by bids for the 
subject services. 

Yours truly, 

Thomas J. Spring, 

Justice, 
Charles I. Taylor, 
Justice. 



EXTENSION OF CONTRACTS. 

Public Works Department. 
Approval ha.s been given for the ex- 
tension of the time of completion of the 
contract dated September 22, 1952, with 
Martin J. Kelly Company, Inc., 75 Stod- 
man street, Jamaica Plain, for constnic- 
tion of concrete deck, etc., on Broadway 
Bridge, over Fort Point Channel, to April 
15, 1954. This extension was requested 
because the contractor requested addi- 



tional time to complete the painting and 
minor steel repairs under the deck of the 
bridge. This has no bearing on the use 
of the roadway.

VETO OF ORDER FOR PAYMENT OF 

ANNUITY TO MARY I. BARRETT. 
The following was received: 
City of Boston, 
Office of the Mayor, December 31, 1953. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I am returning herewith, disapproved, the 
order passed by your Honorable Body on 
December 21, 1953, granting under section 89A 
of chapter 32 of the General Laws an annuity 
for the widow of the late Frederick J. Barrett. 

Before an annuity can be granted under the 
statute cited, it must, by the express terms of 
the statute, be proven to the satisfaction of 
the Mayor and City Council that the death of 
the deceased was the natural and proximate 
result of an accident occurring, or of under- 
going a hazard peculiar to his employment, 
while he was acting in the performance and 



within the scope of his duty. My objection 
to the order returned herewith is that, in Mr. 
Barrett's case, this fact has not yet been 
proven to my satisfaction. The Medical Board, 
in reaching the conclusion it did, appears to 
have rehed on the so-called "heart law" 
(G. L. [Ter. Ed.] c. 32, s. 94, as amended), 
but, as appeai-s from the papers attached to 
the petition, the Corporation Counsel advised 
the Medical Board that that Board should con- 
sider this case as if it had arisen prior to the 
heart law because neither hypertension nor 
heart disease caused the death. The Medical 
Board's report refers to an aflSdavit of Dr. 
Laurence W. McGrath; but that affidavit is 
essentially the same, in substance, as Dr. 
McGrath's letter of June 13, 1953, to which 
the Corporation Counsel makes reference. 
"There is nothing in the autopsy report men- 
tioned in the Medical Board's decision to ne- 
gate the cause of death as stated in the death 
certificate, which mentions neither hyperten- 
sion nor heart disease. It may be, as the 
autopsy report indicates, that a hypertensive 
arteriosclerotic heart disease was present; but 
that does not establish that the death was the 
natural and proximate result of that condition. 

My recommendation is that the case be re- 
manded to the Medical Board to consider anew 
after further consultation with the Corpora- 
tion Counsel. 

Respectfully, 

J. B. Hynes, Mayor. 
The message and order were referre<l to the 
Committee on Claims. 



ADDITIONAL STAFF MEMBERS FOR 
PLANNING BOARD. 

The following was received: 
City of Boston, 
Office of the Mayor, December 28, 1953. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I transmit herewith communication from the 
City Planning Board in relerence to a recent 
order adopted by your Honorable Body relative 
to additional staff members for the Planning 
Board. 

Respectfully, 

J. B. Hynes, Mayor. 

City Planning Board, 

December 23, 1953. 

Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

In answer to your request for report and 
consideration on City Council order concern- 
ing resolution that the staff and budget of the 
Planning Department be increased substan- 
tially, I am writing as follows: 

The City Planning Board, in deference to 
your Honor's wishes, has presented a budget 
for 1954 which it considers a bare minimum 
to carry out its assignments. An increase of 
$16,000 in the regular budget over that ap- 
propriated last year and an increase of $35,000 
in the Special Appropriation for the Rezoning 
Study, have been requested. Actually, in 
this last item we are requesting an increase 
of only $16,000 over what was spent last year 
since practically all of the 1952 appropriation 
was available. The increases asked are moder- 
ate when the work program is considered. 

The major project will be acceleration of the 
Rezoning Study, which, in fact, speeds up the 
whole planning schedule. It will involve 
meeting with neighborhood groups, not only 
concerning proposed land use and zone 
changes, but initiating neighborhood master 
plan studies, as well as over-all system studies 
(schools, recreation, fire, etc.). 

Besides routine operations, special studies 
like the central area, central artery, capital 
improvement program, parking and circula- 
tion, and referrals must be carried forward at 
the same time. 

Recognition by the City Council of the ox- 
tent of the city's planning problems and its 
interest in obtaining a proper budget is np- 
pi-eciated. 

Very truly yours, 
Thomas F. McDonougti, Chairman, 
rlaccd on file.

J. McNulty, pastor of my parish, St. Gregory s 
Catholic Church in Dorchester. 

Reverend BERNARD J. McNULTY— Al- 
mighty father, inspiratioQ of all that is gMii, | 



and glory of all that is beautiful, fashion our 
daily conduct to Thy eternal standards. Amid 
the confusing vicissitudes of our earthly sojourn, 
focus, we pray Thee, our belief on the eventual 
triumph of right, since no other incentive can 
impart to us the necessary enthusiasm, faith, 
and will power to carrj' on as Thou wouldst have 
us. Deliver us, we beseech Thee, from the 
seductive quicksands of termitic groups. Open 
our eyes and enlighten our intellects to see through 
the specious sham of false isms of those disloyal, 
destructive borers from within or insidious, vicious 
borers from without. Grant that we may never 
be guilty of even attempting to exclude anyone 
because of his race, his creed, or his complexion 
from those privileges guaranteed by the Con- 
stitution. O Lord, may we realize that by this 
course alone shall we reach the high destiny 
ordained for us as a nation by Thy eternal decrees. 

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be 
Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be 
done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day 
our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those who trespass against us, and 
lead us not into temptation but deliver us from 
evil. Amen.

ANNUAL ADDRESS OF HON. JOHN B. 
HYNES, MAYOR OF BOSTON. 

Mayor HYNES — Today marks the beginning 
of a new municipal year. I pray it will be a year 
of progress for our city government and one of 
peace and prosperity for our citizens. 

It is no exaggeration to report that Boston, like 
many other large cities, is now going through a 
most cliallenging period. Neither is it exaggera- 
tion to state that Boston, because of its compara- 
tively small area, and because of its narrow income 
base, has less weapons with which to meet that 
challenge than any of the larger cities of our 
country. 

The job ahead is made more difficult by the fact 
that there is no immediate prospect of better imple- 
ments to work with, and, for the reason, too, that 
Boston is an old city with many of the ills which 
come with age. We must, therefore, tackle the 
job with the tools at hand. We must strive not 
merely to do our best, but better than our best. 
In no other way can we meet the challenge and the 
responsibility which rests upon us. 

The business and industrial activities of a city 
are its lifelines. Ours are being cut. almost daily. 
Over 30 per cent of the properties in our city are 
tax exempt. This percentage is growing, and 
public improvements such as the Central Artery 
will further increase this percentage. .Applica- 
tions for building permits for the year 1953 indicate 
clearly what is happening. For the 12-raonth 
period just passed, these applications represented 
approximately $15,000,000 of new construction. Of 
tliis amount, $9,000,000, or (iO per cent was for tax- 
exempt structures. It is hardly necessary to era- 
pliasize the truism that the less property there is 
to tax the higher must go the tax rate or the less 
service we can provide. The higher the tax rate, 
the more difficult it is to attract new business, 
indeed, the harder it becomes to hold our present 
business. 

A situation such as this calls for forthright, even 
extraordinary remedies. 

In the absence of substantial income, other than 
that from real estate, we must arrange, plan, and 
direct our municipal functions in such manner as 
to picrfgrm ovcry tsjscutial activity of muaiuitml 



government at the lowest possible expense con- 
sistent with good service and efficiency. By follow- 
ing such a course we give encouragement to business 
within our city, and assurance to other business 
interests that our city government is attempting 
to discharge its responsibilities with more than 
passing regard for those who pay the lion's share of 
municipal costs. " It would be a great tragedy, with 
depressing consequences to our city and our people, 
if business were to lose confidence in the municipal 
government. We must not let that happen. 

It is unfortunate that reference to Boston's high 
tax rate carries with it an implication that our city 
is the most wasteful and extravagant of all the 
large cities in our country. This is an unjustified 
and unfair assumption. 

As far as comparative tax rates are concerned, 
our position would be vastly improved if our 
city had available to it the sources of income 
now available to cities which have a more 
attractive tax rate than Boston's. 

A high or a low tax rate is not necessarily a 
true reflection of efficient or inefficient manage- 
ment of a city, nor is it necessarily true that a 
business enterprise, or individual taxpayer, 
located in a lower tax rate community has a 
distinct advantage over those whose businesses 
or homes are in a high tax rate community. On 
the surface it might appear so, but upon close 
analysis it can be shown that the over-all cost 
of doing business, or living, in a so-called high 
tax rate community, is actually no greater thin 
in a so-called lower tax rate community. 

As true as this may be, it is equally true that 
it is common practice to classify a city according 
to its tax rate, and as long as this is so, and as 
long as Boston must perform its municipal duties 
from an outmoded and insufficient tax base, it 
is imperative that we be ever watchful of any 
expense which will further inflate the tax rate. 

Fortunately, in Boston there are many indi- 
viduals and groups who clearly understand the 
numerous impediments which make impossible 
an immediate change in our tax rate picture. 
Fortunately, too, the state government has come 
to the realization that Boston is the key to the 
prosperity of the Commonwealth as a whole. 
On many sides, I am glad to say, there is a newer 
and a fairer understanding of Boston's problems 
and a genuine desire to help in the solution of 
those problems. Marshaling all our forces in a 
common endeavor to improve Boston's position 
will result in a better city, a better community, 
a better state There is nothing so wrong with 
Boston that the right kind of medication will 
not help. Our city has no malady for which the 
combined, concerted efforts of those who love 
it cannot provide a cure. It is true that the city 
officials have a grave and primary responsibility. 
We acknowledge it and we accept it. But there 
is also a responsibility on the part of all good 
citizens, secondary though it may be, to help the 
city officials accomplish those objectives which 
must be reached if our city is to retain its place 
among the leading and progressive cities of our 
land. 

I am most happy to state that abroad in our 
city today is a spirit of willingness to help. A 
city with spirit is a city which cannot be counted 
out. 

In recent years, the city administration has 
effected notable economies which, unfortunately, 
have been swallowed up by charges, such as the 
MT.-V deficit, over which the city administration 
has no control. 

This administration will make further economies 
wherever and whenever possible. It will continue 
to strengthen the basic structure of the city govern- 
ment, for unless that is done, we are subject to the 
vagaries of every economic wind that blows. 

In this year of 1954, it is my intention to begin a 
complete revaluation of the assessable properties in 
our city. Until that is accomplished, there will be 
inequities in profusion; there will be puUing and 
hauling and inevitable charges of favoritism; there 
will be an almost uncontrollable traffic in abate- 
ments; there can be dissatisfaction, disquiet and 
even suspicion. 

The common rule of fairness, in addition to other 
compelling reasons, dictates the necessity for a city- 
wide revaluation. 

The rehabiUtation of our city, in so far as it can 
be done, is of prime importance to every individual 
in our city. Boston is old, but not so old that it 
patheticaUy awaits the call of the grim reaper. 
Many of the areas within our city need rejuvena- 
tion, rehabilitation. The large-scale urban rede- 
velopment plans, once legally approved, the new 
redevelopment plans of the Federal Government 
liberalizing construction and repair financing, once 
approved by the Congress, and the rehabiUtation 
plans of the city itself, with its 15 committees of 
district leaders, once put into full operation, 
will revive our city, stop decay and blight and 
give Boston a new, attractive face and a better out- 
look for the future. 

The reorganization of the structure of our city 
government is both necessary and sensible. 

The purpose of reorganization is to streamline 
an archaic and costly administrative pattern of 
departments and boards. It will improve depart- 
mental efficiency; it will make possible the merging 
of closely-reUited functions; it will result, in due 
time, in marked savings in municipal operating 
costs. 

On the last day of the old year, your Honorable 
Body gave approval to the establishment of an 
Administrative Services Department. This new 
(lopartmcnt 'will tnrgia its vmrk immediately. It ia

luy opinion that this department will prove to be of 
great value to our city in the same way and to the 
same extent that similar departments nave proveid 
of gretLt value to other large American cities. 

The remainder of the reorganization plan, not 
yet enacted, is being submitted to your Honorable 
Body today. 

I recommend its pa.ssagc. 

The (|iiickcr all of the reorganization plan is 
enacted into ordinance, the quicker we may go 
f orward in the complicated ta.-k of putting the 
complete plan of reorganization into motion. I 
trubt that this most important matter will be 
liroiiiptly acted upon. 

In closing, may I suggest to the City Council 
that itii collective and individual support of pe- 
titions filed by the city with the 1954 Legislature 
will 1)€ ma-^t welcome and helpful. 

The i>assage of many of these bills will be cx- 
tremcls' beneficial to our city, and especially i.s 
this true of matters [Hrtaining to the strengthening 
t'f our financial position; the elimination of in- 
'■([uities in MT.\ assessments; the better regu- 
lation of traffic and parking; the construction of 
a municipal auditorium within the area of the 
new Back Bay center which, incidentally, I am 
reasonably confident will come to pass as the 
outstanding improvement in our city for many 
long year3. Your interest and help in the pa&sage 
of city-sponsored bills before the Legislature can 
be invaluable. 

Your interest and help in many other directions 
can also be of invaluable aid. Dest)ito the need 
for careful scrutiny of all expenditures, there is 
the necessity of keeping the plant of the city in 
good running order. It is just as short-sighted to 
ignore the pressing demands calling for major or 
ca|>ital outlajs as it is to spend the city's money 
in a reckless or frivolous fashion. To postpone 
major improvements that can no longer be de- 
ferred is to prepare a sorry mixture of bitter 
broth for the future. 

No city stands still. It goes backward or for- 
ward. Even though our fonvard progress be 
j>ainfully slow, we must keep going ahead, for as 
long as our motion is in tliat direction we serve 
our city well. I shall, therefore, from time to time 
during this year, submit for your consideration 
and your approval matters which will have as 
their objective the preservation or improvement 
of our phj'sical plant, in addition to matters which 
will liave for tlieir purpose the strengthening of 
our financial position. 

In your consideration of those matters, I most 
respectfully suggest that reasonably prompt action 
on the part of your Body will give assurance that 
the elected officials of our city government are 
working in concert for the good of our people and 
for the betterment of our city. 

Finally, let me for the historic record mention 
the annual art festival early in June and the Christ- 
mas festival held during the Christiims season, 
both of which attract thousands of guests to our 
<'ity, and both of which enhance Boston's world- 
wide reputation as a center of cultural and spiritual 
pursuits. 

lyet me also express my deep appreciation to the 
volunteer unpaid committee which made a study 
and excellent recommendations relative to our 
iraflic problems; to the committee still engaged 
in an indejiendcnt survey of our munici|)al finances, 
and to the 15 committees which are the founda- 
tions of our ho[)es to stop the growth of blight 
and dei;ay which can, unless retarded, affect our 
w hole city. 

These committees and the committees and in- 
dividuals who work with us in our efforts to eradi- 
cate the causes of racial tensions ami juvenile 
delinquency, and the committees and individuals 
who work with us in our annual Kicld Uay and 
(Christmas I'und campaigns for the r'oor and un- 
fortunate in our city, arc all deservmg of publie 
■icclaim. It is the voluntary', wliulcheartud and 
UcncruuN spirit of these committees and individuals 
which give us the right to Ix; proud of the innate 
KOcj<i (jualities of our citizens. 

To each of the mcmlx^rs of the I'Jjl \'Jj'} City 
('ouncil, I extend my |H;rsunal well wishes and 
my ho|>e that our rclationsliips will be productive 
of an improved municipality. It is nut an empty 
phra.sc to state that the ro(j|KTative action of the 
City Council and the Chief Kxecutive will bring 
dividends in the way of better city government 
and better municipal service. Ix.'t our aim be in 
that direction. Together and in an atmosphere 
of understanding, mutual trust and cooi>cration, 
wc can accumplish much for our fellow citizens 
who delegated to us the responsibilities which are 
ours. 

May wc always remember, both you and 1, 
that all power comes from Uod, and let us iniploru 
Him to guide us in all our deliberations so that 
the power wl ich is teiiii orarily in our hands may 
be utilized for the things which in His sight are 
KO«<l things. (.\|<plauso.)

LO.\N OF $7.'i,000,000 IN ANTICIP.VTIOX OF 
REVENUE. 
The following was reeeived: 

City of Boston, 
Office of the Maj'or. January 4, l'J'>4. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I am in receipt of the attached comiiiunieation 
from the City .\uditor. In accordance with the 
recommendation contained therein I submit 
herewith an order authorizing the i-ssuance during 
1954 of temporary notes in anticipation of revenue 
to an amount not exceeding $7-5.000.00O. I re- 
spectfully recommend adoption of this order by 
your Honorable Body. 

Respectfully. 

J. B. Hv.vKs. Mayor. 

City of Boston. 
.\uditing Department, December ,31, 19.53. 
Hon. John B. Hynes, 

Mayor of Boston. 

Dear Sir: 

It is customary to submit to the City Council 
at its first meeting in the New Year an order 
authorizing the issuance as needed during the 
year of temporary loans in anticipation of revenue 
receipts. This method of financing is made neces- 
sary by the fact that under the Ma.s,sacliiisetts 
iiiiinicipnl tax calendar the m.ajor portion of the 
city's revenue receipts is received late in the year. 

By authority of section 4 of chapter 44 of the 
Cenrral Laws, the city could i.ssuc in 19 )4 in antici- 
pation of revenue receipts temporary loans which 
would not exceed in the aggregate the total tax 
levy of the fiscal year 19.53 together with the 
corporation and income tax received from the 
Commonwealth during the financial vear I'ia-i. 
This would total approxiinat4>ly $123,000,000. In 
my (jpinion it is desirable that an authorization of 
$75,000,030 be in-vdc in order to cover requirements 
as thev now ap|>ear for the financial year 19.54. 
In 19.VJ an authorization of 875,000,000 was made 
antl it was necessary to issue during the year 
tem|iorary notes to the amount of $110,000,000. 
It is estimated, however, that in the current year 
actual cash reciuirements should be approximately 
the same as tliose for 19.53. 

I resijectfully recommend, therefore, that an 
order in the amount previously stated be sub- 
mitted to the City Council for consideration and 
ailoption. 

Respectfully, 

JoSKi-H P. Lallv, 

City Auditor.

to meet the ap|)ropriations for the financial year

thorized to is.siie and sell, at 8uch times and in 
such amounts as he may deem best, not^-s or certif-

Ri:Oli(:.\MZATION OF CITY HOARDS 

AND DEPARTMENTS. 
The following was received: 

City of Boston, 
Office of the ^Iayor, .lanuary 4, 1954. 
To the City Council, 
(icntlcmcn: 

On November 30, 1953, I recommended to 
the City Council as then constituted a fortv-eight 
page TTrdinanei' which «"mild substantially re- 



organize the structure of our municipal government 
and provide the Chief Executive with an efficient 
organization for administering the affairs of the 
City. The subsequent holiday season and the 
pressure of the other year-end business permitted 
that Body to consider and act only upon the 
merits of the eight or so pages pertaining to an 
Administrative Services Department. 

The substantial reorganization of the major 
structure of our government sought by the ordi- 
nance I recommended is yet to be accomplished. 
.■Accordingly, I have caused to be prepared, and 
submit herewith, an ordinance containing, without 
substantive change except as to the effective 
date, the remaining provisions of the ordinance 
I recommended on November 30, 1953. For 
the reasons stated in my message of that date, 
I urge and recommend its adoption within the 
sixty-day period fixed by the City Charter for 
the consideration of an ordinance so that it may 
take effect on the first day of the month next 
succeeding the month in which the annual budget 
for the current year shall become effective. 
Respectfully, 

J. B. Hv.vEs, Mayor.

IMPROVED SERVICE BY MTA TO CITY 
POINT. 

The following was received : 

City of Boston, 
OfBce of the Mayor, January 4, 1954. 
To the City Council. 
Gentlemen: 

I transmit herewith communication from the 
General Manager of the Metropolitan Transit 
.\uthority relative to your order of December 14, 
1953, requesting that his Honor the Mayor be 
requested to make as strong an possible representa- 
tions to the trustees of the MT.\ concerning the 
necessity of providing additional service on the 
City Point-Treniont Street bus line. 

Respectfully, 

J. B. HvNES, Mayor. 



Metropolitan Transit Authority. 

December 28, 1953. 

Mr. Harold B. Flemmiug, 

Chief Clerk, Mayor's Office. 
Dear Sir: 

In reply to your reference of December 16 with 
regard to South Boston service, it is not physically 
possible to restore streetcar operation. 

The Board provided a transfer station at 
Trcmont and Shawmut for the buses and also 
is providing a second escalator in the Broadway 
Station of the Dorchester Tunnel. Doubling the 
number of buses on that line would cost nearly 
J90.000. 

The difficulty is the very heavy traffic on the 
Broadway Extension Bridge which (completely up- 
.scts our schedules, but which will be greatly re- 
lieved when tl>e Dover Street Bridge is reopened 
in February. 

The suggestion of altering the aisle s|)aec is now 
under engineering study and it is hoped can be 
cITccted. 

Yours very trul.\-, 

EUWAKU Da.na, 

General Manager. 

Placed on file.

CITY OF BOSTON STANDS TO LOSE OVER $3,600,000 
ON SALES OF SINQLE= AND TWO=FAMILY HOUS= 
I NO UNITS BUILT TO HOUSE VETERANS AND 
THEIR FAMILIES FINANCE COMMISSION BRINGS 
FACTS TO ATTENTION OF MAYOR JOHN B. 
HYNES PROPERTIES TO BE OFFERED FOR SALE 
IN SIXTH YEAR AFTER COMPLETION BY LAW. 



The Finance Conimiission has addressed the following com- 
munication to the Mayor and City Council: 

Boston, January 15, 1954. 

7V> Ihv Honorable the Mayor and City CounciL 

In a communication to you, dated February 13, 1953, the Finance 
Commis.sion forecast the probable ultimate cost to the taxpayers of Boston 
of "the social experiment of the 194G Legislature, Chapter 372," which 
authorized municipalities to provide housing for veterans. This should 
not be confused with the housing provided under authorization of Chapter 
200 of 1948, which is the great bulk of public housing now completed, 
for which the State financed the entire cost. The Chapter 372 housing 
was entirely at City expense. 

As was stated a year ago, this segment of housing consisted of a total 
of 1,310 family units, there being among them 17 one-family dwellings, 
487 two-family dwellings, and 319 dwelling units in multiple-apartment 
structures. Without sale of any of them in 1953, the Finance Commission 
showed that the operation and financing cost over and above all receipts 
of any kind would approximate $2,260,898.55 by the end of 1953, and 
that because a State subsidy authorized for a five-year period would end 
in 1953, the above figure would be increased at an annual rate of more 
than $600,000 per year until they were sold. It was then forecast, also, 
that if the entire number of dwelhng units were sold in 1953 at an average 
price of $8,000 per unit, the loss to the taxpayers would amount to 
$2,359,182.55. It appears now that this loss will be much greater. 

The sale of these properties is mandatory by Chapter 372 referred to. 
It is the responsibility of the Boston Housing Authority. The Mayor and 
Council of Boston have no authority in the matter. However, the State 
Housing Board is given approval authority. Nevertheless, because Mayors 
and City Councillors of Boston have been among those who advocated this 
method of pro\'iding housing for veterans, it is well to record the cost of 
the project. 

Since the 372 Chapter requires that the properties be offered for sale 
in the sixth year after completion and the sixth year of many of them began 
in 1953, the Housing Authority provided itself with a professional current 
appraisal. An eminent real estate authority was retained and his ap- 
praisal is now available. There is also available an appraisal by the State 
Housing Board, and another by the Veterans Administration Bureau. 

In these appraisals the multiple-apartment buildings were not included. 
'I'hey concern the 17 single-family dwellings and the 487 two-family 
dwellings. They indicate a sale value of an average of $7,000 per unit, 
rather than $8,000, which was the figure used by the Finance Commission 
in its 1953 (•ommunication. 

Obviously, this lujw prospective sales price will mean a substantial 
incrca.se in the over-all total loss forecast by the Finance Commission 
previously. As then stated, that loss on a basis of an average $8,000 per 
unit sale" would be $2,359,182.55. An average unit sale price of $7,000 
would add $1,000 to that figure and therefore would increase the total 
loss to well above $3,600,000.

NEW REORGANIZATION 
PLANS FOR CITY UNDER 
WAY. 

(Continued from page 03.) 

of 1953, creating the Administrative 
Services Department and amending cer- 
tain administrative procedures. The 
extent of the Council action is set forth 
in Document 55 — 1953, copies of which 
may be secured from the City Messen- 
ger. The important procedural changes 
arc .set forth in the following paragraphs: 
Purchasinr/ Divmon. The former Sup- 
l)ly Depart incnt is now the Purchasing 
IJivision of the Administrative Services 
Department, and (he head of this new 
division is entitled Purchasing Agent, 
lender the new ordinance this official is 
in charge of (he printing plant, and all 
recjuisitions for printing and/or binding 
must be submitted to liim. Because of 
tliis change, a new form of printing and 
binding requisition has been designed 
and printed. The new form is to be 
prepared in triplicate, one copy to be 
retained in the department initiating 
the requisition and tlic other two copies 
sent to the Purchasing Division. Only 
one item should be placed on a j-equisi- 
tion, and each requisition should bear a 
departmental number in the upper riglil- 
hand section. If a requisition provides 
for printing from copy, the copy may be 



.sent directly to the printing plant but, 
in such a case, no actual printing will 
be started until the requisition covering 
t he work ha.s cleared through the Pur- 
cha.sing Division. It is essential, there- 
fore, that printing requisitions be pre- 
pared and sent to the Purchasing Divi- 
.sion on or before the time copy is sent 
to the printing plant. On all copies sent 
directly to the printing plant, there 
should be attached an identification slip 
on which will appear the name of the 
department, the number of the requisi- 
tion, and the signature of the depart- 
ment head. Copies of this form may be 
secured by requisition through the Pur- 
chasing Division. 

Personnel Changes. Under section 5 
of the new ordinance, all appointments, 
promotions, compen.sation adjustments, 
transfers, and leaves of absence of de- 
partmental personnel must be approved 
by the Director of Administrative Sen-- 
ices before becoming effective. Because of 
this change new personnel forms have 
been designed and printed and should 
bo secured immediately through the 
Purchasing Agent. The new forms and 
numbers arc as follows: 

fien. 14 Appointment. 

Gen. 15 Promotion. 

Gen. 16 Transfer of Employee. 

Gen. 17 I^eave of AI)sence. 

Gen. 37 Adjustment in Compensation. 



9 5 



To assure orderly procedure and 
standard practice the following condi- 
tions must be observed in submitting 
personnel recommendations: 

(1) The effective date of the action 
recommended shall not be earlier than 
the Wednesday following the action in 
which the recommendation is submit- 
ted. No retroactive action will be ap- 
proved. This means that all paper 
work connected with personnel changes 
must be anticipated and provided for 
in advance of the payroll period when 
such changes go into effect. 

(2) Positions shown on any per- 
sonnel form must be listed in the de- 
partmental classification list on file 
in the Personnel Division, and the 
action proposed must not represent 
an increase in the departmental quota 
for the title or rating involved. All 
leaves of absence, with or without pay, 
should be reported to the Personnel 
Division on Form 17. 

_ (3) Disposal oj Surplus Property. 
L'nder section 6 of the new ordinance 
a new procedure is established for dis- 
posing of departmental personal prop- 
erty which is no longer required for 
the purposes of the department in- 
volved. In such a case the officer in 
charge of the department by a writing 
executed in triplicate transfers the 
custody of such property to the Pur- 
chasing Agent. This latter official may 
provide for the transfer of such prop- 
erty to another municipal department, 
or if he finds no other department i.-4 
interested in the item, he may with 
the approval of the Mayor sell or 
otherwise dispose of the property, pro- 
vided he estimates the value thereof 
not to exceed $500. In the event the 
estimated value exceeds this latter 
figure, the Purchasing Agent must 
secure Council approval of any action 
he may deem advantageous lo the 
city. 

Any questions relating to the adminis- 
tration or interpretation of these pro- 
cedural changes should be referred to 
this office for decision.

DirecLor oj Administrative Services.

STENOGRAPHER FOR GRAND 
JURY TESTIMONY. 

The Maj'or ha.s api^rovcd the follow- 
ing request of the District Attorney: 

Boston, December 30, 19.53. 
Hox. John B. Hynes, 
Mayor o] Boston. 
Deak Mayok Hynes: 

In comiection with the i)resentatioa 
of cases to the Suffolk County Clrand 
Jury, it is necessary that the testimony 
of all witnes.ses appearing before the 
Grand Jury be taken down stenograph- 
ically. It is also ncces.sary that such 
te.stimony be transcribed almost iinme- 
tiiately so that the ca.ses can be prepared 
and the defendants placed on trial. 

At the present time, the stenographic 
work and tran.'5crii)tion i.s being done by 
one individual who, in addition, is re- 
sponsible for the drawing of all indict- 
ments returned by the Grand Jurj'. I 
find that the above work cannot be per- 
formed by a single individual as in the 
p.ist. In 1953 approximately 649 more 
complaints were heard and acted upon 
by the Grand Jury than in the previous 
year. 

It is absolutely necessary that I should 
])ave a stenographer capable of taking 
down Grand Juiy testimony; conse- 
quently, I am .submitting the name of 
Miss Pauline Feingold, 69 West Cedar 
street, Bo.ston, Ma.s.s., for an .Mppoint- 
ment as stenographer. 

If possible, I would like to ha\e tliin 
ajipointmcnt made effective immediately, 
as the Grand Jmy will be in se.ssion on 
Jamiary 4, 1954, and the services of Miss 
Feingold will be needed at that time. 

Yours very truly, 

G.\brett H. Byhne, 
Dixlricl Altormy. 
Note: It is requested that Miss Fein- 
gold b(> !q>pointe(l senior clerk at $55.50

CLAIMS ALLOWED. 

Tpon rccomniendalion of the Corjiora- 
tion (,'ouns<'l, the Mayor has approved 
the following claim: 

Ilaso Richter, 1955 Conunonwealth 
:i venue, Brighton, in the sum of S265, as 
compensation for personal injuries cau.sed 
by a niised, portion of the sidewalk in 
front of 5 Vmal street, Brighton, April 
7, 1963. 



REHABILITATION AND 
CONSERVATION PROGRAM. 

{Continued from page !t3.) 

maica Plain Branch, First National Bank, 
Jamaica Plain Committee; Bernard N. 
Hanson, president, Hyde Park Savings 
liank, Hj'de Park Committee. 

The announcement of the names of 
these chairmen marks the completion of 
the appointment by the Mayor of di.s- 
trict committees in the principal 14 sub- 
divisions of the city. In due time, how- 
ever, the Dorchester district, which 
comprises the largest residential area of 
the city, will be subdivided into at least 
four district committees. 

The Neighborhood Rehabilitation and 
Conservation Program is a long-range 
permanent movement, says the Mayor. 
It may take fifteen to twenty years be- 
fore the program will achieve its ultimate 
aim of eliminating blighted properties 
from Boston. Nevertheless, despite the 
fact that the city-wide movement is not 
expected to get under way before spring, 
already amazing progress has been made 
by several of the committees in getting 
their local programs launched — notably 
in South Boston, the South End, and 
Charlestown. 

Illustrative of the groundwork being 
laid by some of the committees in prep- 
aration for the rehabilitation of their 
respective districts is the case of the 
Charlestown Committee, headed by Gil- 
bert H. Hood, vice president of H. P. 
Hood & Sons. Here they have not only 
caused a survey to be made by city 
inspectors of the phj-sical condition of 
499 residential structures, but have con- 
feiTed with city officials with a view 
toward having the entire district zoned, 
the Sulliwm Square Playground rebuilt, 
and present recreational facilities ex- 
panded, and have initiated a long-range 
propaganda campaign to have the MTA 
structure, long a serious blight to the 
entire Charle.stown area, replaced with a 
subway. 

The committee ha.=i also framed a let- 
ter to be sent to the 4,900 owners of 
Charlestown real estate, acquainting them 
with (he iiurposes of the Neighborhood 
Rehabilitation and Conservation Program 
.and soliciting their eooi)eration in elim- 
inating lilight and in rehabilitating all 
Charlestown real estate worth .saving. 

The South End Committee, headed by 
J. Edward Downes, Jr.. also has made 
marked progress in setting u|) its long- 
range program. .\1 ready more than 1.000 
parcels of real estate, involving two im- 
portant residential areas, have been 
studied by City of Boston health in- 
spectors, and the V)uilding inspectors are 
now making a s>'stematic check of the 
same properties with a view toward cor- 
recting any \ iolalion of the City of Bos- 
ton Building Code. .\t the .same time 
the committee is making a study of all 
of the existing recreational facilities of 
the area with a view toward bringing 
about increa.sed use by the South End 
children. 

The Sotith Boston Committee, headed 
by Richard G. Welch, in addition to en- 
couraging the owners of the l,4flS parcels 
of re.il estate in the "Pilot .Area" of the 
district to re)Miir and repaint their prop- 
erties where needed, is engaged in at- 
tenqiting to improve trnflic eondition.«< 
throughout the area. Representatives of 
the commillee met with the Traffic Com- 
mis.<«ion during the past week with a view 



toward di\ erting heavy truck traffic away 
from the central residential thorough- 
fares. Also, as a result of the commit- 
tee's recommendations, the city has al- 
ready started work in South Boston on 
rebuilding 11 streets and sidewalks, re- 
placing 70 antiquated gas lamps with 
modem electrical equipment, marking out 
areas for the planting of 150 Norway 
maple trees along streets leading up to 
Dorchester Heights, and resodding the 
sides of the Heights Park.
